2023 Honda Classic Odds, Predictions, & PGA DFS Picks

This week, the PGA Tour begins its Florida Swing with The Honda Classic, hosted by PGA National.[0] The 7,125-yard par 70 course features Bermuda grass greens and is littered with water hazards.[1] The field this week will be headlined by 2020 winner Sungjae Im and other top contenders such as Billy Horschel, Shane Lowry, Alex Noren, and Matt Kuchar.[1]

The 2023 Honda Classic odds have Im as the 17-2 favorite, followed by Lowry at 14-1.[2] Other top contenders include Aaron Wise (22-1), Chris Kirk (25-1), Min Woo Lee (25-1), and Alex Noren (25-1).[3] Before making any 2023 Honda Classic picks, be sure to check out the PGA Tour predictions and best bets from SportsLine golf insider Patrick McDonald.[2]

When setting your PGA DFS strategy for the 2023 Honda Classic, Im is expected to be among the top daily Fantasy golf picks. He finished on top of the leaderboard at the Honda Classic in 2020 and has finished T-6 or better in two of his last three starts on the PGA Tour.[4] Other top PGA DFS picks include Ben Griffin, Will Gordon, and Ryan Palmer.

In addition to setting your PGA DFS strategy, make sure to check out the past winners at PGA National.[5] Padraig Harrington was the most recent winner in 2015, and Justin Thomas was the winner in 2018. It's also important to look at the course characteristics and the strokes gained: par 4 as well as the strokes gained: approach.
