  • The Honda Classic had a purse of $8.4 million.
  • The winner's share was $1,512,000.
  • Chris Kirk beat Eric Cole in a playoff.

The PGA Tour shifted from the West Coast to Florida for the Florida Swing, beginning with the Honda Classic from PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens Feb. 23-26.

Since the tournament was sandwiched between four designated events, the field lacked star power.

Sungjae Im, No. 18 in the Official World Golf Rankings, was the highest-ranked player teeing it up. He also had the best golf odds to win, entering the tournament at +850.

But despite the weak field, it was an exciting tournament.

Chris Kirk defeated Eric Cole, a PGA Tour rookie, on the first playoff hole to claim his first PGA Tour win since 2015. Kirk bogeyed the 18th hole in the final round to send the tournament to extra holes but then made a birdie in the playoff.

Cole lipped out his birdie attempt to force a second playoff hole.
