The Honda Classic is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in south Florida. It was founded 48 years ago in 1972 as Jackie Gleason's Inverrary Classic, and is usually the first of the Florida events in late winter following the "West Coast Swing." National Airlines was the sponsor in 1973 with Gleason and American Motors Corporation backed it in 1981. Since 1982, American Honda Motor Company has been the title sponsor.
