I've been to the Honda Classic, and per the advice of veteran members on this forum, I went on Tuesday -- the practice round. I had a blast. I was the only person following Sean O'Hair at one point -- for six holes -- before watching Boo Weekley hit a tee shot (the most amazing rhythm I have ever seen). Then I followed DA Points, Dicky Pride and Jason Kokrak around and they were thrilled to have someone watching them. They kept talking to me during their practice while making fun of each other's swings.
I followed Furyk and Kenny Perry for a hole, but there were about 15 people there, so I left pretty quickly. Perry blocked his tee shot into the water and said "thank god it's Tuesday."
Then I ran into Kyle Stanley on 10 and he pummeled a drive farther than I've ever seen someone hit a tee shot. Had to be 335. Then I saw Jose Maria O and Fred Funk for a tee shot, followed by YE Yang and some other Korean players for a hole. Again, no one else around except for their families inside the ropes.
Tuesdays are great because there are so few people there. Wish I could speak for the actual tournament, but I was golfing.
Just saying, don't overlook Tuesday. You can get all the great views you want.
Too bad Tiger and Rory played at 9AM or I'd have checked them out. I heard they had legit sized crowds following them though.
A lot of the concession stands are closed, but some are open. And the ticket for Tuesday is half price I think.
Food prices vary with each tourney, but I recall stuff being cheaper than a ball game. I had my cell on me yea, but turned the ringer off. I thought cameras weren't allowed, so I left mine in the car, but it turns out, they were okay -- still kicking myself for not bringing it because I would've filmed these guys in slow-mo all day long.
I think you can bring a backpack yea... and a chair, but again, this was Tuesday, and they were pretty lax about stuff.
Oh yea, and wear some comfortable shows. I must've walked like ten miles that day.
