Cognizant Classic – Formerly known as the Honda Classic, the Cognizant Classic will bring the top talent of the PGA TOUR to Palm Beach Gardens starting February 29 through March 3. As the only PGA event held in South Florida, it not only provides thrills and excitement on the course, but also a complete week of entertainment for the entire community. The top names in golf will give it their all at the PGA National Resort.
