Sony Open

The Tour stays off the mainland for one more week as they travel to the island of Oahu for the Sony Open. The course is a bit tougher than Kapalua so scores will naturally be a bit higher this week. Par this week is 70 (versus 72 last week) so even though you may see scores of 66 or 67, the total scores will be higher. Justin Thomas holds the Par 70 course record at 61 in 2015 (shot on Friday and followed by back to back rounds of even par on the weekend), and comes in hot after his win last week. The course is set up better for guys who hit it long off the tee as well as those who possess a strong iron game, so we’ll be leaning heavily on those who gain strokes from tee to green (SG:T2G). If you’re trying to decide between a player who’s playing his first event in over two months or someone who played last week, I’d give the nod to the guy who’s taken some swings...
