Controlled burn affecting Honda Classic


PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – A controlled burn about 15 miles from the site of the Honda Classic sent smoky air over the tournament course for Saturday’s third round.

Play continued as scheduled.

The burn was in Jonathan Dickinson State Park, located in Martin County, and northeast winds carried the smoke into Palm Beach County – including the area around PGA National Resort and Spa, which hosts the Honda.

Haze could be seen all around the course, thicker in some areas than others.

Fire officials in both Martin and Palm Beach counties said the burn was proceeding as planned.
