Sony Open in Hawaii Tips and Predictions: Best Bet 🏆
We are going to chase a bit of a price about our best bet this week with American golfer Ryan Palmer. He finished T4th in the event last year and his recent form is very good as he was also T4th at the Zozo Championship in October and finishing outright fourth in the Tournament of Champions last week. Palmer has won the Sony Open in Hawaii in the past, winning the event back in 2010 with -15. With excellent current form, Palmer looks a great bet as he attempts a second win at Wai’alae.
Sony Open in Hawaii Tips and Predictions: Best Value 💰
Lanto Griffin looks the best value for the tournament. He finished T13th at Kapalua last week for the Tournament of Champions. Griffin finished in seventh place in the Sony Open in Hawaii last year and this course suits his game. On Sunday, he finished -6 under par with a round of 67 and has had decent form over the last three months. With five places on offer, Griffin can be backed each-way in the tournament.
Sony Open in Hawaii Tips and Predictions: Top 20 Finish 2️⃣0️⃣
Brendan Steele looks to recapture some form as he has struggled recently with zero top 20 finishes from his last 10 events. So why are we even looking at Steele? He was beaten by Cameron Smith in this tournament last year and comes off a six-week break which should help rejuvenate his mind and body for the tournament. He is a sneaky chance for a top 20 finish at good odds.
