Prepare To Hear About "The Bear Trap" For Another Four Years...

For Immediate Release...


PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL - The Honda Classic has extended its contract with PGA National Resort & Spa to keep the PGA TOUR event at its current home for at least the next four years.
The Honda / PGA National marriage has been a win-win relationship for both parties as The Honda has blossomed into one of the elite events on the PGA TOUR in its six years at PGA National and the Champion course has become known as one of the most challenging layouts in tournament golf. The Bear Trap, comprised of Holes 15-17, is considered one of the toughest stretches of golf on the PGA TOUR.
A world class field now plays The Honda each year and last year Rory McIlroy, the No. 1 player in the world, dueled to the wire with Tiger Woods. The 2012 Honda raised a tournament record $1.85 million for South Florida Children's charities.
"We feel like we have the best venue on the PGA TOUR," Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R. Kennerly said.

Down boy!

"The move to PGA National has allowed The Honda Classic to emerge as one of the top events of the year. The players love the course and enjoy their time in Palm Beach County which is evidenced by the number of top players who continue to move to this area. We are excited that we will be able to stay at PGA National as we move into the future."

Geoff, do you want them to return to Eagle Trace? Mirabel? PGA National is the best venue this toonamint has ever had.

When I care enough to have an opinion I'll let you know!

I just think it is an unattractive course.

Oh wait- you didn't ask me.

The real story of course is that the Tour has renewed an event with a major sponsor for four more years
You beat on the tour but this is why they get paid and you never hear the players carp.

"When I care enough to have an opinion I'll let you know! "

A classic answer and line from our host, so classic that when I use it I will feel guilty if I don't give attribution.

Of course you have an opinion, Geoff, but sometimes you're wise enough to hit a five-iron off the tee.

someone with nothing better to do should actually count how many times that phrased is using on Sat and least 50, yes?
