A field of 136 players will tee it up this week at the famed Champions Course at PGA National for the 50th edition of The Honda Classic.

It’s the first of the four-stop Florida swing.

The field is not quite as stacked as last week’s Genesis Invitational at Riviera, with just six of the top-25 ranked players in the OWGR.

As we do each week, here’s a look at the field in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida… by the numbers.
