Carl Pettersson 20/1

pettersson_thumb[1] The highlights of 2012 for Carl were a win at the RBC Heritage in April after a good showing in Houston and top three at the US PGA Championship. He’s been irked by what he believes to be a witch hunt against his long putter and that could spur him to big things this season. Three top 20’s to finish last season add weight to that. Speaking of pounds, Carl is the perfect size to battle the Waialae winds this week and has done well here in the past. Despite the stats saying that these are some of the hardest fairways to hit Pettersson has a good course record with tied fifth in 2010 and tied second last season. That 2012 result was even more impressive given that he double bogeyed the second hole in the final round.

Charles Howell 25/1

ch Couldn’t get a pic of Charles so a stick insect will have to do.  Waialae constantly ranks in the top half most difficult courses in the Greens In Regulation stats as well as the aforementioned driving difficulty but that doesn’t stop another anomaly in the form of Charles Howell III doing well here regularly. Not known for his accuracy with the big stick Howell has had five top-5 finishes in this event since 2005 including tying second in 2007 and 2012.

Mark Wilson 66/1

mark-wilson-golf_t640_thumb[1] There’s not many realistic opportunities for Mark Wilson to really make money on the PGA Tour given his power limitations and modern course setups but this week on a par 70 in Honolulu represents one of them. Three of Wilson’s five Tour wins have come in January and February with the other two in March, so it’s safe to suggest he’s a decent early season performer also. His last victory came here in 2011 and though he missed the cut defending last week, Wilson did go on to win the Clinton Humana event the following week.

Keegan Bradley 18/1

Tied for 13th last season but I felt he played better than the result suggests. Drove the ball beautifully for the first three days (67,67, 68) before stunting to an even par 70 on Sunday. However I feel that Bradley has gained experience from that and will challenge this year. There may be an issue with his high ball flight depending on how strong the winds get this week but that’s a call you make close to game time.

Matt Every 50/1

Keep an eye out for the performance of Matt Every this week at longer odds. He impressed at the season of last season finishing in a tie for second at the Children’s Miracle Network Classic behind panicky Charlie Beljan. He also putted great at the Sony Open with the enormous headed Blackhawk putter.

Best of The Rest

Short but sweet hitter Brian Gay 45/1 is well positioned to bag himself a good finish this week having improved from T13th in 2011 to T6th in 2012 and he should be available at long odds for those who like such a flutter.
