Past champs Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler highlight field for 2024 Cognizant Classic at PGA National

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.
