The Boys are Back in Florida. The Florida Swing has begun and it is a great time to go and enjoy golf at its finest, supporting your favorite player and at the same time helping raise money for the numerous charities the Honda Classic, Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational contribute to.

Dustin Johnson, playing his Taylor Made M1 driver, fairway woods, irons and ball, won the Genesis Open with a five stroke lead at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles to take over World # 1 from Jason Day. He has now won at least one tournament in 10 consecutive years, tying Tiger and Jack. FYI- Arnie won in 17 consecutive years.

Freddie Couples playing his Bridgestone 330 golf ball won the Chubb Classic on the Jack Nicklaus & Son designed Talon course at Twin Eagles Golf & Country Club in Naples, Florida, breaking his drought of not winning since 2014, and garnering his 12th victory on the PGA Champions Tour.

How about Ha Na Jang, the 24 year old South Korean, winning the ISPS Handa Australian Open at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club, playing the last four holes 5 under to secure her fourth victory on the LPGA. Her drives were averaging 300+ yards because of the wind and hard fast fairways. She was quoted, “Oh, 300 yards, looks like I’m a little-girl Bubba Watson.”

Rickie Fowler walked away with the win at the Honda Classic on the Champions Course at PGA National Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens by four strokes, his seventh professional victory.

The World Golf Championship moves from Trump National Doral, Miami to Mexico City this year. The event will host an international roster of professionals playing in the WGC-Mexico Championship March 2-5, and then on to the Valspar Championship on the Copperhead course at the beautiful Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida.

The Arnold Palmer Invitational will have five hosts, replacing the ‘King’. Golf greats Peter Jacobson, Graeme McDowell, Annika Sorenstam and Curtis Strange will join former Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge, a friend and fellow Pennsylvanian of Arnie’s, to host and continue the legacy of one of Orlando’s favorite citizens, March 13-19 at the Bay Hill Golf Club and Lodge. Graeme’s and Annika’s children were born at Arnold Palmer Hospital. Curtis won the Arnold Palmer Scholarship to attend Wake Forest University, Arnold’s alma mater. Let’s make it the largest crowd ever to attend and celebrate what Mr. Palmer means to Central Florida.
