Brutally boring, you beat me to it.  I go out of my way to tell friends to skip the Champ when they play in Palm Beach.

Yup I played it about 5 years ago and I couldn’t believe it’s a regular tour course. And man it’s worse without the tour there because at least the fans and grandstands hide the houses.

So let this be a lesson to all of you reading.
 

Save your $300 and go play North Palm Beach, Abacoa and Palm Beach Par 3...all 3 for the same as it would cost for PGA National Champ 😊

Interesting that Lee is doing this solo...as it pertains to yardages, club selection, reads, etc.  They were commenting on how that is how it was in the "old days".  Probably a good thing that Helen is not a serious golfer and try's to assume this role... that could put a strain on a relationship.

I believe Berger will be the highest ranked player in the field, so the odds are in his favor.  As for Rickie, I just don't know.  He and Jordan seemed to have traded places.

I'm sorry... I have to give up on Rickie this year.  Maybe because I have, he will win.  Hope he does.

Safe money is on Berger, I think Tringale or Gooch break through.

Are we talking about the same track?  Looking at the website, it sure looks nice.  Add in their descriptions; "PGA's Toughest Course", "Unquestionably one of the best courses in Florida" and it sounds like a brute. Plus, I see they have 5 courses on site; The Champion, The Palmer, The Fazio, The Squire, and The Estates.

Great to get perspective from our forum spies on stuff like this.  Yours and @bens197review places this one in my skip it column - though it would be rare I'd opt to play courses like this anyway.  I prefer to play equally challenging courses (at least by rating/slope) that are not part of the tour circuit... better value IMO.

Oh it’s tough. That doesn’t make it a good course though. Long, Lots of water and the wind can wreak havoc. But the design is flat and the holes are forgettable. 
 

I went there excited to play a pga tour course and left there with very little memories.  Just an uninspiring course

@jlukespretty much hit the nail on the head. 
 

Difficult and fun for me, that would be Bethpage Black. Difficult and frustratingly unimpressive, PGA Champ. 
 

The PGA has always struggled with this event. Mirasol was a shakeup that didn’t really change much for attracting top names.  Let’s be honest, even if they thought PGA National could lure top guys its still a tough draw when you’re hitting on deck for Bay Hill and The Players.

Rickie has taken over the “Lost” spot from Jordan Spieth. Hopefully he’ll get back to form quickly.
