Red Hot Harman Is The Best Bet For The Sony Open In Hawaii

The PGA Tour remains in Hawaii this week for the Sony Open at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu and Justin Thomas returns as defending champion following a sensational performance twelve months ago...

Tips Brian Harman (each way) - T4    Best Bet @ 20 / 1 P

Charles Howell III (each way) - T32 @ 50 / 1  
Gary Woodland (each way) - T7 @ 50 / 1  

The Head Of The Market

It is Jordan Spieth who is a 5/1 favourite after he finished third here last year and it bodes well that he recovered from a poor opening round to finish in the top-ten at Kapalua last week, albeit 5/1 is a touch skinny after we had our fingers burned by Jordan last week.

Justin Thomas opened with a stunning opening round 59 before setting a tournament scoring record of 27-under-par and he returns as a 15/2 shot when bidding to bounce back from a disappointing effort at last week's Tournament of Champions.

Next best in the betting is Marc Leishman (16/1) and he is very much a player to follow when the wind blows, which it invariably does in Honolulu. However, he has picked up plenty of top-20s at the Sony Open without ever really contending and it remains to be seen if he can recover from the disappointment of blowing a share of the 36-hole lead at Kapalua at the weekend.

The Selections

Our first pick is the in-form Brian Harman who has started the new PGA Tour campaign with four successive top-ten finishes following his 3rd place effort on Sunday. Harman is five-for-six in terms of cuts made at Honolulu and it augurs well that he has finished in the top-20 in each of the last three.

Waialae Country Club could be the venue for Harman to continue his red hot run of form with a win.
Tip #1: Brian Harman (each way) @ 20/1 with Paddy Power.

Zach Johnson is very much a horse for this course as he prepares to make his first start in seven weeks. The former Open Championship winner ended last year with three top-25 efforts in a row and signed off with a tie for 8th at the RSM Classic, while the 2009 Sony Open champion has finished in the top-ten in three of his past four appearances at Waialae.
Tip #2: Zach Johnson (each way) @ 33/1 with PaddyPower.com.

Charles Howell III is another who loves playing at Waialae as he ranks third in terms of all-time earnings in this event thanks to a return of nine top-tens, including seven top-fives, from his past sixteen appearances. A return of three top-20s in the autumn suggests the ultra-consistent American should be towards the head of the leaderboard once more.
Tip #3: Charles Howell III (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.

Finally, Gary Woodland is excellent from tee-to-green and he is a player who is worth keeping an eye on in Honolulu, where he boasts a scoring average of 66.50 since 2015 following finishes of 3-13-6.
Tip #4: Gary Woodland (each way) @ 50/1 with Betfred.
