This week some of the best golfers in the world have gathered at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens for the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic. While everyone will flock to the Champion course to catch a glimpse of Tiger, Rory, and others try and take down the famed Bear Trap, the Honda Classic is much more than just the Thursday-Sunday tournament.

Wednesday’s Kenny G Celebrity Pro Am brought attention to something close to the hearts of not just the local residents but people from around the country, wounded warriors and veterans. Several wounded veterans took the course as caddies on Wednesday to raise awareness for two different charities. Caddies for the Cure aids victims of Fanconi anemia, which is a rare bone marrow disorder. The other charity, fairways…

Mall Rendering

The Palm Beach Mall in West Palm Beach has been a longstanding part of Palm Beach County since the day it was designed. Originally opened in 1967 the Palm Beach Mall had a phenomenal reputation.

For its time and for years to come, the Palm Beach Mall really was an icon for great shopping with flagship stores like Lord & Taylor, Sears and Burdines. Unfortunately, the mall’s reputation had slipped in later years due to tough competition from new and developing shopping centers.  

The famous mall was closed in 2010 with only a few of the department stores remaining open including: JC Penny, George’s Music Store and a…

Will Rory Mcllroy rebound from a slow start to his 2013 season?

Rory Mcllroy has gotten off to a slow start to the 2013 season. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi and was eliminated in the first round last weekend at the WGC Match Play Championship. With his change to Nike this past offseason, experts and fans want to know if he is struggling with his new clubs. The defending champion at the event, Mcllroy looks to quiet all his doubters, and a strong performance this week at PGA National will do exactly that.

Can Tiger continue his good play?

Throw out his first run exit at the frozen tundra of Dove Mountain last week and Tiger (Jupiter Island) has had a pretty good start to his 2013 season. He already has a tour victory at Torrey Pines and seems to…

Florida Golf Course

Rain wreaked havoc on the opening day of the week long festivities associated with the Honda Classic at PGA National yesterday. The Miami Dolphins Pro-Am was cut to only nine holes after a 30 minute rainstorm intensified, causing tournament officials to call the event in order to preserve the courses conditions for this weekend’s event.
 
“We want to make sure the golf course stays in the best condition as we work toward Thursday,” tournament director Ed McEnroe told The Palm Beach Post. “We don’t want it to become too sloppy out there and potentially affect the golf course come competition time.

Rain could affect more than just yesterday’s event. More rain is expected on Tuesday afternoon, when the pros are expected to get their first of two practice…

Round one was pushed back a day due to a freak snow storm and it didn’t get much better for some of the top local golfers after play resumed on Thursday.

After Wednesday’s weather transformed Dove Mountain from a golf course to a winter wonderland full of snow and ice, golfers returned Thursday to either finish or start their first round matchups in the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship. Just like they did the day before, they waited around for hours on Thursday as they waited for conditions to become favorable enough to play as well as course staff to finish shoveling snow off of most of the fairways and greens. It ended up being a one-and-done day for 32 golfers, several of which are some of the top golfers in the world. Here is a recap from day one,…
