Dwyer grad Daniel Berger happy with fast start at hometown Honda Classic


Jupiter resident and Dwyer High School grad Daniel Berger hasn’t made the cut at the Honda Classic since his 2015 runner-up finish, but he’s of to a great start in 2018, finishing at -3 after the first round.

“It’s a really, really tough golf course,” says Berger. “The conditions today were super windy, the greens were super fast. To get off to a good start makes it a little easier, and I’m in a good position which is right where I want to be.”

Playing with Sergio Garcia and his good friend, Jupiter Island resident Justin Thomas, who also finished the day at -3 was a big boost.

“Absolutely, when you’ve got a group, you’re kind of feeding off each other,” says Berger. “We’re all hitting good shots which makes it easier to see what you want to do out there.”
