The first stop of the PGA Tour’s Florida Swing is going to have plenty of familiar names teeing it up, even if the tournament’s name is different.
The 2024 Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches, formerly the Honda Classic, is the first of four straight weeks the Tour will be in the Sunshine State. PGA National’s The Champion course in Palm Beach Gardens is a par-70 layout measuring 7,125 yards and has long been a stern test on the schedule.
Rory McIlroy, the 2012 champion of the event, highlights the field, along with 2017 winner Rickie Fowler. Chris Kirk, who won the season-opening The Sentry in Hawaii, returns to defend his title, as well. Other notables in the field include Matt Fitzpatrick, Tom Kim, Shane Lowry and Min Woo Lee.
Ryan Palmer is also in the field, and it will be his 500th PGA Tour start.
Here’s a look at the field for the 2024 Cognizant Classic.

Golf PGSF FedEx Cup Week 8: The Mexico Open at Vidanta (sign-up is still open)


The PGA TOUR heads to Mexico for the Mexico Open at Vidanta​


Winner receives 500 FedExCup points.
COURSE: Vidanta Vallarta, par 71, 7,456 yards. This design opened in 2015 and meanders along the Ameca River while views of the Sierra Madres are offered on every hole. There are large landing areas off the tee while cavernous bunkers protect the large greens. Positioning off the tee is key to success at Vidanta Vallarta, as nine of the top 15 names on the leaderboard a year ago were in the top-10 in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee, including winner Jon Rahm, who was second. The course added 250 yards from its original design in preparation for the arrival of the PGA TOUR, along with 51 new bunkers (for a total of 106).
72-HOLE RECORD: 267, Jon Rahm (2022)
18-HOLE RECORD: 63, Tony Finau (Round 4, 2022), Brandon Wu (Round 4, 2022)

FSU women's tennis routs No. 14 Duke

FSU sports information:

The Florida State women’s tennis team (5-4, 1-1 ACC) earns its first ranked victory of the season as the Seminoles won 6-1 against No. 14 Duke (6-4, 0-2 ACC) at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center on Sunday.

“We fired on all cylinders today and took control of the match after the doubles point and never let up,” FSU coach Jennifer Hyde said. “It is hard to do, especially against a very good Duke team, and I am so glad we gave that effort today.”

Florida State started off strong as Ellie Schoppe and Kristyna Lavickova won 7-6 (4) at No. 2 doubles. Anna Arkadianou and Vic Allen followed by winning 7-6 (1) at No. 1 doubles to secure the doubles point and take the early 1-0 lead.

The Seminoles continued the momentum as they won five of their first sets and tacked onto their lead as sophomore Millie Bissett won 6-3, 6-1 at No. 4 singles.

Duke responded with a win at No. 5 singles to cut the deficit.

Florida State’s Anna Arkadianou earned an incredible 6-1, 6-1 win over the 76th-ranked Katie Codd put the Seminoles ahead 3-1.

Senior Ellie Schoppe clinched the match as she defeated No. 80 Shavit Kimchi 6-2, 7-5. The Seminoles did not stop there as Laura Putz won 7-5, 6-1 and Allen won 6-1, 7-5 to conclude the day.

Sunday’s victory was FSU’s highest-ranked win since defeated No. 10 Duke 4-2 on March 25, 2022.

Florida State returns to action next Sunday against Mercer and FAMU at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.
