Global Firm IMG to Take Over Honda Classic

Global sports, media, and fashion firm IMG acquired the IGP Sports and Entertainment Group on Monday. IGP had been the management company of the Honda Classic at PGA National since 2006.

PGA National Club2-featuredIMG will now take over the operation of the Honda Classic but have said that all aspects of the tournament, including its name and location in Palm Beach Gardens, will remain the same.  The event will also continue to partner with the Jack Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.

Ken Kennerly founded the North Palm Beach based IGP firm and started running the Honda Classic in 2006. It was because of him that the tournament found a long term home at PGA National and brought in some of the biggest names in golf over the past few years, including local golfers Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy.

Kennerly will remain on board as the executive director of the Honda Classic and has assured fans and spectators that there will be very little changes when it comes to the spectator viewing experience.
