Reigning Masters champ Adam Scott, the No. 2 player in the world, will end a six-week break from competition at The Honda Classic.
Scott, who won four times around the world last year, plans to spend part of the hiatus in the Bahamas working on his game. The Aussie, who finished fourth in the FedExCup, posted top-10s in the PGA TOUR's two Hawaii stops.
The Honda Classic will be held Feb. 24-March 2 at PGA National Resort & Spa.
"There's got to be a break somewhere," Scott said. "I could keep playing. I feel like I'm playing well. But you can't continue to perform at the level you want if you play all the time. I'm forcing myself to take a break."
