The Honda Classic | Final Round Preview
PALM BEACH GARDENS - Daniel Berger tied largest 54-hole lead in Honda Classic tournament history and holds largest 54-hole lead on Tour since Jon Rahm at the 2021 Memorial Tournament. Berger is seeking his fifth career PGA Tour win and his third consecutive season with a win on Tour.
Shane Lowry posted low round of Saturday, playing at 3-under (67) and is now five strokes off the lead.
There are two non-PGA Tour members in the top 20 on the leaderboard, with Monday Open Qualifier Martin Contini (T-7) and sponsor exemption Andrew Kozan (T-19). A Top-10 finish by a non-member can earn a berth into next week’s Puerto Rico Open.
With a cumulative average of +1.666 through three rounds, PGA National is playing as the hardest non-major course on Tour since the 2020 BMW Championship (Olympia Fields Country Club/North).

On This Day in Golf History:
February 27, 1977 - Jack Nicklaus made three birdies and an eagle on the back nine of the Inverrary Golf and Country Club in Fort Lauderdasle, Florida to win the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic by five strokes over runner-up Gary Player. And, Away We Go. - Courtesy of Randy Walker, Author of On This Day in Golf History, available via Amazon.com and by clicking HERE
As long as Jackie Gleason was mentioned above, we might as well pay tribute to Art Carney (Ed Norton) and “address the ball.”
