Favorites

Cameron Smith (+800)

There’s no hotter player in Hawaii over the past two years than Cameron Smith. The 28-year-old Aussie won the Sony Open in 2020 and completed the “Aloha Swing” earlier this week with his win in Kapalua.

Not only does Smith have winning momentum on his side entering Honolulu, but he also set a new all-time PGA TOUR record with his 34-under victory last week. Smith also jumped to No. 3 in the FedExCup standings with that win, further displaying his all-around form in the first quarter of the season.

Webb Simpson (+1,400)

In terms of lengthier consistency at Waialae, though, few golfers compare to Webb Simpson’s run at the venue. In 11 career Sony Open starts, the former U.S. Open champion made the cut on all 11 instances. 

Not only that, but Simpson’s been a contender at the tournament virtually every single year. He has a run of seven straight top-20 finishes at the event, including three top-five finishes since 2018. Top-15 finishes in his last two starts in general further boost his value as the second-best pick to win it all behind Smith this week.

Dark Horses

Seamus Power (+4,000)

Save for a couple of missed cuts, it’s pretty safe to say that Seamus Power is still having his best season in the PGA TOUR to date. In five of his seven starts, the Irish lad from Waterford finished no worse than T21.

Power also had a terrific debut in Kapalua this past week, finishing tied for 15th for his fourth top-15 finish of the season. Prior to that solid showing in Maui, Power secured a T4 finish at The RSM Classic in November, which was his most recent start before getting back on the TOUR’s course in the new year.

Brendan Steele (+5,000)

As the runner-up to Smith’s victory in Waialae from 2020, Brendan Steele is a sneaky sleeper pick worth considering this week given his recent showings at the tournament. The 38-year-old also had a superb T4 finish at the 2019 Sony Open prior to his silver medal finish.

Steele will be making his first start of 2022 in the place where he’s had great success in the recent past. It’s also worth noting that he came close to winning his first PGA TOUR event since 2017 last October with a T2 finish at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP.

Huge Reach

Peter Malnati (+15,000)

Speaking of long winning droughts, Peter Malnati has not tasted victory on the PGA TOUR level since his first and only win at the Sanderson Farms Championship back in 2015. The Indiana native has not gotten close to winning another PGA TOUR event since, with his 2018 win at a Web.com Tour-level tournament being his last professional victory to date. 

That being said, only the brave would place huge stakes on someone like Malnati to win this week’s tournament despite his lackluster form following his one and only moment under the golfing spotlight over half a decade ago.
