The PGA Tour’s first full-field event of the year is the 2023 Sony Open, which will be hosted in Honolulu at Waialae Country Club.
Last year, this event saw a thrilling final day. Russell Henley, who won this event back in 2013, led for most of Sunday, but he couldn’t shake Hideki Matsuyama. The 2021 Masters champion forced a playoff and notched his first win since claiming that green jacket.
Both Henley and Matsuyama are back in this week’s field, and they’re joined by a couple noteworthy names on the Tour.
Bettors should get used to seeing Tom Kim’s name toward the top of odds boards in 2023. He is alone at the top of the board at +1200 at bet365.
The 20-year-old Korean sensation already has two wins on Tour, at last August’s Wyndham Championship and October’s Shriners Children’s Open. He also was a star at the Presidents Cup in September for the International Team.
Kim has only played three events this season, which started in September, but he’s fourth in the FedEx Cup Official Standings because of his win. He started 2023 ranked 15th in the Official World Golf Ranking before his T5 finish at the Tournament of Champions.
Fellow Korean Sungjae Im is near Kim at the top of the odds board this week, as well. He has the second-shortest odds at bet365 at open at +1400.
Jordan Spieth finished T13 at the Tournament of Champions after an underwhelming weekend performance in Maui, but the 29-year-old showed signs of a renaissance last year. He is in a tie for the third=shortest odds at open at +1600.
After going almost four years without a PGA Tour win, Spieth has a win in each of the last two years. In that span, he has three top-10 finishes at majors.
Here are other players who hopped over from Maui to Honolulu:
- Corey Conners (+2500)
- Billy Horschel (+2800)
- Tom Hoge (+2800)
- Adam Scott (+3300)
- Cam Davis (+3500)
- K.H. Lee (+3500)
- J.J. Spaun (+4500)
- J.T. Poston (+7000)
- Adam Svensson (+8000)
While Kapalua was a par-73 track that measured longer than 7,500 yards, Waialae Country Club is a much different kind of course.
Waialae is just over 7,000 yards and a par-70. It’s a different, but like Kapalua it usually sees a very low score win. We’ve seen 20-under or better for the winner in six of the last eight tournaments.
