Jordan Spieth To Start 2018 With Another Win At The Tournament Of Champions

A new calendar year of golf begins with the Tournament Of Champions on the Plantation Course at the Kapalua Resort in Maui and as the name would suggest, the field of 34 players in Hawaii is made up exclusively of tournament winners from last season...

Spieth To Be Too Strong

This is an event that Jordan Spieth has a close affinity with and it is difficult to oppose the bookmakers' 6/1 favourite (Unibet). The 2016 winner has gone 2-1-3 in his three appearances at Kapalua, boasting a scoring average of 67.67, and it is ominous for the rest of the field that he ended 2017 with six successive top-tens on the PGA Tour, including a tie for 3rd at the Hero World Challenge last time out.
Tip #1: Jordan Spieth to win @ 6/1 with Unibet.

Rickie Fowler took the title at the Hero World Challenge and he has gone 6-5 in his two visits to Kapalua, with Fowler currently available at 7/1. The American doesn't win titles in the same consistent manner as Spieth and we can't be backing him at just one point bigger than the favourite.

Defending champion Justin Tomas is also available at 7/1 as he bids to win a third straight title on Hawaiian soil, while Dustin Johnson, who has racked up successive top-ten finishes in his last five appearances in this event, including his title in 2013, and he is available at 10/1.

Elsewhere, Hideki Matsuyama is a tempting 12/1 (Betfred) after finishing 3rd and 2nd in his two outings in this tournament and he has a scoring average of 68.13 in that time. The Japanese star has racked up three top-fives in his past four starts worldwide and we wait to see whether he can maintain that sort of form...

Un-Leish Mark

Finally, regular readers will know that we are big fans of Marc Leishman and the Australian is nicely priced at 22/1 (Betfred). He only finished tied for 23rd on his debut on the Plantation Course in 2013 but he arrives in fine form, racking up four top-four finishes in his final six starts of 2017, and he is a player who will relish the potentially windy conditions in Maui.
Tip #2: Marc Leishman (each way) @ 22/1 with Betfred.com.
