Six years after losing a playoff at PGA National, Daniel Berger returns to the Honda Classic as the betting favorite.
Berger was an unheralded local product when he surprised many with his play at this event in 2015, reaching a playoff before losing to three-time major champ Padraig Harrington. His career has blossomed since, with a Presidents Cup berth to go along with four PGA Tour victories. The most recent of those came just last month at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and Berger returns to his de facto home game on a run of four top-10s in his last six starts including a T-9 finish last week at The Players.
That recent form is a big reason why Berger is the top man on the odds chart at this event, where he finished T-4 a year ago. He's listed at +1000 according to PointsBet Sportsbook, just ahead of defending champ Sungjae Im (+1200) who earned his first career Tour victory here a year ago. Fresh off two straight runner-up finishes, Lee Westwood is next at +2000 along with Chilean phenom Joaquin Niemann.
Here's a look at some of the other notable odds this week at Honda, which is missing some of its traditional starpower in its new spot on the calendar directly following the Tour's flagship event:
