For some people, the PGA Tour season starts exactly when the execs in those Ponte Vedra Beach corner offices say it does — back in September, right on the heels of the previous season ending.

For others, it doesn’t really start until the azaleas are in full bloom at Augusta National, as if nothing matters until the year’s first major championship.

Me? I’ll split the difference.

In my mind, the golf season begins on the first tee at Kapalua, not only the most scenic setting for such festivities, but the most appropriate, as hope springs eternal in the dawn of a new calendar year.

One round into this start, Joaquin Niemann holds the Sentry TOC lead, the result of a brilliant bogey-free 7-under 66 opener. But that, of course, was just the appetizer. The main course promises to be a little tougher to swallow.

With strong winds expected to be gusting to 35-40 mph during the next three rounds, the leaderboard is going to change a lot. Here are a few bets I like for Round 2 and beyond:

Odds as of Thursday evening and via William Hill, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get $10 free and up to a $150 deposit match.
