2019 Honda Classic Fantasy Sleeper Report
You can discuss world rankings, FedExCups and all that sort of thing, but really we all know that when he’s motivated, nobody in world golf can touch Dustin Johnson.
His ability to combine beastly drives with beautiful touch and feel on and around the greens is an irresistible combination, and once again he proved that when the world’s best collide – as they did in the WGC-Mexico Championship – DJ can come out on top.
Nobody really got near him as he won by five strokes, and it remains a mystery as to why he has just one major title to his name. Perhaps that will change in 2019?

The PGA TOUR rolls around to its Florida Swing, with four back-to-back events on the East Coast opened up by the Honda Classic this week.
If it’s an event that sets bells ringing in your mind that might be because of the host venue, the PGA National, and its infamous ‘Bear Trap’ of holes from fifteen through seventeen.
Designed by the Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus, himself, this trio of holes combines a devilish Par 3 with a monstrous Par 4 that leaves players with an almighty approach shot and another Par 4 with one of the smallest greens you will see on the PGA TOUR rotation.
Usually the players can expect a stiff breeze too – that has contributed to only one winning score of double digits under par in five years, although the early forecast suggests that conditions might be rather more benign this time around.
Generally, the classier sorts tend to thrive here, but there have been sleeper winners with the likes of Russell Henley, Padraig Harrington and Michael Thompson not exactly fancied before the off.
As such, we can have confidence in the sleepers this week, and so here’s half-dozen to savor for the Honda Classic.
