Honda Classic 2013: Tee times, pairings and TV schedule for Thursday

Stuart Franklin

Rory McIlroy will defend his Honda Classic title following a disappointing showing in match-play event.

Rory McIlroy will set out to defend his Honda Classic victory of last season on Thursday. Coming off a disappointing showing and quick exit from the Accenture Match-Play in Marana, Ariz., the world's No. 1 player had only a closed-session competition with world No. 2 golfer Tiger Woods to ready himself in the past week.

McIlroy tees off at 12:25 p.m. ET at the Par 70, 7,110 yard course in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. He'll be chasing the winnings of $1,026,000 that is part of the $6 million purse. Woods has an earlier start of 7:25 a.m. ET.

Last season, it was Woods and McIlroy leading the charge in the 2012 Honda Classic field of golfers. McIlroy finished 12 shots below part to hold off Woods and fellow American Tom Gillis, who both finished 10-under.
