The 90-minute drive down the Florida Turnpike from Palm Beach Gardens to Doral after the Honda Classic is gone, replaced this season by a three-hour charter flight to Mexico, where golfers will compete in this week’s World Golf Championships event.
The change in venues prompted the predictable laments stateside. But to wax rhapsodic about the good old days when golfers decamped to Florida for the month of March to gear up for the Masters is to turn a blind eye to the game’s evolution.
