The PGA Tour kicked off its Florida swing this week at the Honda Classic, which is held at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. The Palm Beach area is home to several tour players, as is nearby Jupiter. 

Jack Nicklaus resides in North Palm Beach, and with just about every top player in town for the Honda Classic, he decided to host a dinner party -- no, a massive dinner party -- Thursday night for U.S. Ryder Cup hopefuls.

Tiger Woods, who was at Nicklaus' house, probably won't make the team given the fact that he's rehabbing from multiple back surgeries, but he'll serve as a vice-captain to Davis Love III. Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and several other American golfers were also there.

Fowler even ate a carton of Jack's branded ice cream with Nicklaus. What a time to be alive.

As evidenced by the group photo, the U.S. Ryder Cup team is in good hands this year. Fowler is playing as well as anyone, and Mickelson continues to chug along at the ripe age of 45.
