Ted Potter is back in action this week at the $7 million Honda Classic, to be played at the PGA National Champion course in Palm Beach Gardens.
After missing the cut in his first seven events of the wrap-around season, Ted has made the cut in three of his last four, earning $187,727 over that span. In his most recent effort, Ted finished in a tie for seventh at 14 under par at the Puerto Rico Open. Despite the missed cuts, he's played the last six events in 23 under, picked up 91 FedEx Cup points along the way and moved from nowhere to 159th place on that important list.
The defending champ is Sungjae Im, whose 6 under par finish edged Mackenzie Hughes by a stroke. Im collected $1,260,000. He finished tied for 17th at 7 under par Sunday in the Players Championship, closing with 66 after a Saturday 77 knocked him out of contention.
Justin Thomas won the Players by one stroke at 14 under par after a Sunday 68, while runner-up Lee Westwood could only muster up par 72.
Once again, the Honda field has drawn a slew of the over 50 group, including K. J. Choi, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker and 49er Padraig Harrington, who becomes eligible for the Champions Tour on Aug. 1. Westwood, soon to be 48, will also play.
In the collegians department, the Seminoles will be represented by Daniel Berger, Chase Koepka and Hank Lebioda, while Brian Gay and Camilo Villegas carry the hopes of the Gators.
