Tiger skipping hometown Honda Classic for 2nd consecutive year

  Tiger skipping hometown Honda Classic for 2nd consecutive year Tiger Woods has elected to skip next week's Honda Classic - a tournament that takes place 30 minutes south of his residence in Jupiter, Florida - for the second straight year. No Tiger at the Honda. And, frankly, no surprise. — Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) February 21, 2020 Woods has played in the Honda Classic five times during his career. His best finish, a tie for 12th, came in his last appearance in 2018.With The Players Championship moving to March, the Florida swing has become considerably more congested. The Arnold Palmer Invitational, which Tiger has won eight times, follows the Honda Classic in the lead-up to The Players.

Friday at the Honda Classic did not go well for Matt Every.

After shooting an opening-round 74, the two-time PGA Tour winner carded four bogeys and three double-bogeys in Round 2 to plummet down the leaderboard. And somehow, things got even worse.

On the 202-yard, par-3 fifth - the most difficult hole at PGA National - Every hit his tee shot into the water. Then the next. And the next. And then one more found the water for good measure.

In the end, four water balls plus four penalty strokes led to an 11 on the hole for the extremely rare - at least for professional golfers - octuple-bogey.

The 36-year-old finished strong, at least, with a birdie on the last hole to shoot a 15-over 85.

It's safe to say that Every will have the weekend off.

Perspective helps Canadian Mackenzie Hughes excel at Honda Classic .
Canadian Mackenzie Hughes never lost faith in his game, even as he struggled through five consecutive missed cuts to start 2020. But Hughes' professional troubles paled in comparison to the suffering of his friend Daniel Meggs, who succumbed to cancer at the age of 29 on Feb. 23, three weeks before his wife's due date. Hughes, who is also 29 and a father, honoured his friend by writing "DM" on his golf balls at last week's Honda Classic. ThatHughes, who is also 29 and a father, honoured his friend by writing "DM" on his golf balls at last week's Honda Classic. That added a dose of perspective every time he teed his ball up, helping Hughes finish second at the PGA Tour event and challenge Sungjae Im for the title.
