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
Zach Johnson (each way) - T14 @ 33 / 1  
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.
