It has been contested at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, since the event’s modern-day inception as the Hawaiian Open in November 1965.

In addition to the usual PGA Tour eligibility criteria, the Sony Open may invite up to three professional golfers from emerging markets

The course plays to a par 70 for the Sony Open and measures 7,044 yards from the Championship tees. It includes both left and right doglegs and, thanks to its well-planned layout, can challenge the low handicap player while not penalizing the high handicap player. The course is cooled by gentle trade winds and features well-tended and manicured Bermuda grass fairways and greens. The course is nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Waialae-Kahala and its signature hole, the par three eighth hole, is bordered along its full 186 yards by the Pacific Ocean.

TOM HOGE (USA) 100/1

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″]Not sure if I have ever backed Tom before but I feel this place could be right up his alley.

He faced a couple of missed cuts at the end of 2020 but we followed him around at the Mayakoba where he was a different player all together, he managed to close 2020 off with a great tied third place finish.

His driving accuracy was his worst display that week showing only 50% of fairways hit, and still maintained a 76.39% greens in regulation. The putter also blows hot and cold but he should feel at home here this week coming back to TifDwarf Bermuda grass greens. This could be his week to start and increasing his strokes gained putting as this has been a factor of the winners here over the past eight years.

He has some international victories under his belt so if the pressure is on he knows how the close the job out.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ custom_margin=”||-7px|||”]Rory owes us a good week, and feel that based on previous winners it seems to always come down to the flat stick around here.

Strokes gained putting he sits 22nd on the PGA Tour, and he makes on average over a shot on the field every round he plays. This could be very handy coming into Sunday if he is in contention coming down the stretch.

He has drifted outside the top 100 in the world over the past year or so, but this will change and the team have seen a positive demeanour here this week.

He seemed more relaxed and played well at the back end of 2020:

  • Sanderson – 12th
  • RSC Classic – 12th
  • QBE – 2nd

He has also played this event well in the past and gained valuable experience which should a great advantage.

2006 – 2nd       2008 – 2nd       2009 – 12th      2011 – 13th      2015 – 6th        2020 – 21st

If he starts well here then watch out, could be PGA win number seven.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″]I am going to stick with Marc again this week, he showed a good account of himself last week to end up in a tie for 24th place.

What the team did like was his ability to still keep a very high 80% on his greens in regulation stat over the week. He also showed improvement on the greens which will be two big plus points around here this week for sure.

He has been inside the top thirty of the world rankings now for the past five years, and has picked up five wins and managed six runners up spots during that time.

He won the Farmers last year purely based on his putter, we saw some of this magic last week on the greens and if he comes close to that again this week then he could be very close to the top of the leader board.

The team caught up with his back nine on Sunday on hole eleven, he went on a stretch of four birdies in five to close the back nine in 33, so a good finish and a positive vibe to take on to this week.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″]Always a very solid player is Grillo and has been a good banker for us over the years. He has played eight events so far this season and only missed the one cut at the Houston Open which to be fair is not suited to his game.

I have seen a steady improvement over his ball striking since the RSM Classic where he shot rounds of 66/68/65/71, ok so a poor final day which saw him going the wrong way on the leader board on Sunday but never the less some good golf, he followed that with an even better week at the Mayakoba but again another poor Sunday 72 saw him close out in a tie for eighth place.

The team have noticed him putting in many hours already this week on the greens and he looks like he is enjoying the feel of the Bermuda grass greens. If you combine that with his solid approach to green stat which we have taken from the PGA Tour stats it is pretty good reading. Based on 30 rounds of golf he has the best record by far sitting in 14th place.

Can he add a second PGA Tour title in 2021? I think so and this place could be just the ticket.

Russell’s new driver the Srixon ZX7 is on fire we got some data back from trackman over the weekend whilst he was on the range and boy did he look good. Although driving accuracy is not a key factor around here this week it should only be an advantage when you see he has improved that part of his game over the past few months.

The part of his game that has always ranked high is how pure his iron play is and with some of the wind picking up around here this week and noticeably on Sunday, this could be to his advantage having grown up playing links type tracks and being able to hit a lower call flight if needed.

So as experience around here will benefit most, his best results have been:

2015 – 13th          2017 – 11th          2018 – 10th          2019 – 43rd          2020 – 32nd

I feel that a Top 20 bet could also be a good banker for us here. If you take his 2020/21 season he has managed four top twenty five finishes already.

Going to bet £3EW with PP paying 8 places   

Top 20 bet £10  – 4/1 many bookies

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.7.7″ text_font=”|600|||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″]Wouldn’t stick my life savings on this guy as he can blow hot and cold but when he hits form it normally lasts for a few events.

In 2020 he had his fair share of missed cuts, he went four missed cuts in a row then managed a top thirty at the Workday Charity Open, followed that with another missed cut then a 41st finish at the Barracuda. He then went on a run of another four missed cuts only to turn up at the Bermuda Championship and win it shooting rounds of 70/68/67/64 to close at -15.

He played well last week so not sure what Brian will turn up here hence the price is so high. But I just love the experience he brings to the table and does normally perform well around here and confidence is sky high at this moment in time.
