With the new PGA Tour season in full swing, we head to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida for The Honda Classic.

Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

The Honda Classic Fantasy

Sungjae Im:
Sungjae Im is coming off of back-to-back great performances at this event, with an 8th-place finish in 2021 and a win in 2020. On top of that, Im has five top-11 finishes in his last eight starts this season. He ranks top-10 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee (10th), Around-The-Green (2nd), Tee-To-Gren (7th) and Total (4th). If Im's history means anything here, expect a top finish once again.

Tommy Fleetwood:
Tommy Fleetwood doesn't have as much experience here as Im, but he also is coming off of back-to-back great performances at The Honda Classic as well, grabbing a 3rd-place finish in 2021 and a 4th-place finish in 2020. While he has had a light start to the season on the PGA Tour, only playing in a couple events, the last time he teed it up in a PGA event he grabbed a T-7.

Rickie Fowler:
Rickie Fowler represents a bit more of a value play here, but for the number you can get him at, he's a really solid choice considering how well he has performed here in the past. While he placed 65th last year and missed the cut in 2020, prior to that he had three top-six finishes in four starts, including winning the event in 2017. After missing three straight cuts this season, he finally broke the streak and grabbed a T-55 finish at the Genesis invitational. If his game continues to trend in the right direction and he can recapture the magic here, Fowler could make a bigger push than many expect.
