Berger worth a flip in Florida

The Honda Classic at Palm Beach has been a very unpredictable event in recent years, with only one player having claimed more than one victory at PGA National this century.

The man in question, perhaps surprisingly, is Irishman Padraig Harrington, the winner in both 2005 and 2015.

With past form on his side, he offers decent value at 11/1 to be Top Irishman in the field and 25/1 to be the Top GB & Ireland finisher.

Indeed, of the last 10 editions of the tournament, only three have been won by home golfers, including 12 months ago when Rickie Fowler took the honours as he became only the second player in seven years to finish in double-digits under par.

With an overseas flavour in mind, Kiradech Aphibarnrat arrives in good heart after claiming victory at the World Super 6 in Perth where conditions were every bit as tricky as they could be in Palm Beach.

He is 33/10 to be Top Asian finisher and offers a very real prospect of a return.

So who can you look to as a potential winner in what appears to be a wide-open field?

Well, Florida native Daniel Berger missed out in a play-off in 2015 and home comforts might just give him the edge this time around.

He is a lengthy 50/1 to claim the third PGA Tour victory of his career although 9/2 to secure a top-10 finish certainly has some merit.

Meanwhile, there is bound to be plenty of focus on Tiger Woods as he continues his comeback from long-term injury.

He missed the cut at the Genesis Open last week and, with conditions likely to be even tougher this week in Florida, his prospects don’t look too hot and so 4/5 to miss the cut makes plenty of sense.
