Koepka keen to flex muscles at the honda classic, catch all the action on Dstv supersport

SuperSport viewers on DStv can look forward to seeing all the action from the PGA Tour’s The Honda Classic at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 February 2022.

SuperSport is the ultimate destination for Golf fans, with an unparalleled selection of action from around the world.

First played in 1972 as the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic, this tournament was won last year by Matt Jones, who shot 268 (-12) to end five strokes ahead of runner-up Brandon Hagy. “It’s been seven years [since his previous PGA Tour win]. It’s been a tough seven years,” Jones said. “I’ve had ups and I’ve had downs, as all golfers have, but it gets me into a lot of big tournaments now.”

This year’s field at The Honda Classic will feature Jones as returning champion, as well as the likes of Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler, two of the biggest fan favourites in golf.

Koepka, a four-time major winner, is returning to the Champion course where he finished second in 2019, after being forced to miss the 2021 event with a freak knee injury, while Fowler, who won the 2017 Honda and finished second in 2019 and sixth in 2016, also is looking to regain his winning form in 2022.

“Mentally, I still think I’m 21. But the past three years, there’s the realization I’m not that young person any more who can go Jet Ski or wakeboard or whatever,” Koepka said recently. “Getting out of bed now takes 30 minutes to get going. You have to change your lifestyle. I probably packed on 10 to 15 pounds after the knee surgery because I can’t be as active as I was. I can’t go running. I’m never going to be able to run again. You’re parking closer to the door than before and all that.”

Fowler, meanwhile, says he has been feeling good in recent weeks: “It has been a bit more of just going out and not worrying so much about the swing, not golf swing but just playing golf and hitting shots. It’s been fun to be back in a position where I can just go play golf. And like I said, we put the work in on the swing, and so time to stop worrying about that and go play golf. It’s been a long time coming, but it is nice to finally start to see some results.”

The PGA National Resort & Spa Champion Course is a 7,140-yard par 70. The purse for The Honda Classic is $8million.
