The game's leading players head to Florida where Doral hosts the second World Golf Championship event of the season.

Two weeks ago the deserts of Arizona witnessed remarkable snowy landscapes during the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship at Dove Mountain.

Now it's the turn of the famed Doral Resort & Spa which first became part of the PGA Tour schedule in 1962 and quickly became one of the most popular venues on the golfing calendar.

The Blue Monster course, so-named because of its vast expanses of water, has provided many spectacular moments down the years.

Once again, this prestigious tournament can boast one of the strongest fields in the sport.
