Another week, another few days in Hawaii for those following the PGA Tour. What a hard life. This weekend’s action comes from the Sony Open, where 12 of the last 18 victors had played in the previous week, the SBS Tournament of Champions.

That is not to say that Sony Open winners played well in the SBS Tournament of Champions; Jimmy Walker was T21 the weekend before when he became the 2014 winner of this tournament! 

Firstly lets quickly discuss last weekend. Fantastic to see Justin Thomas gain such a convincing victory. As mentioned previously on #GCW he is brilliant for the game and should be a contender on the Tour this year. I am not one to get over excited and predict his Major winning flux BUT I do think Hideki Matsuyama could well lose his Major virgin tag on 2017, seriously how consistent is his play right now?!

But anyway here's my three...

Spieth - 6/1


After finishing second last weekend in such exciting style, Hideki is 7-1 for this tournament. Favourite is in fact that kid Jordan Spieth at 6-1. Now Jordan played some amazing shots in order to gain a third place last week and this has earned him favourite position for the Sony and a place on every pundit’s list.

Usually I like to buck all trends but I cannot argue with this I am afraid. Interesting to note this will be his Sony Open debut but that is no bother, he finished second in the Masters first time out.


Russell Knox - 40/1

So back to that lovely stat we had in the first paragraph. Russell Knox was a player who caught the eye in 2016 after scoring in the Travelers Championship in August. In fact I told everyone to back him at The Open, where he finished tied 30th, following on from tied 23rd in the US Open and prior to a tied 22nd in the PGA Championship.

Not bad going for a relative newbie. This week he is priced at 40-1. He fits the criteria for my statistic, in the fact he finished a solid tied 17th in the SBS Tournament of Champions and this short course should suit his game. 


Jason Dufner - 50/1

Now I cannot tip Brandt Snedeker up two weeks in a row, especially after he let me down last weekend, so I am going to rely on an old favourite. Jason Dufner.

Post his 2013 PGA Championship victory Jason has had a bit of a hard time but his game appears to be back, scoring in the CareerBuilder Challenge on the Tour last year. The Dufmeister was tied ninth here last year with four rounds under par. He finished 21st last weekend and is 50-1.
