2017 Sony Open Betting Preview and Tips

It'll be the usual birdie fest at Waialae this week, with the new kids strutting their stuff and some of the old boys hoping to bag some early coin on this  short 7,044 yard Par 70.  Fabian Gomez won with 20 under last year and if the Trade Winds don't blow, expect even lower scoring this time around with several of the big names hot.

Favourite Discussion

Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama are battling it out for the favourite tag pre tournament at about 7/1 . Hideki didn't win last week but he was right up there again and anyone who watched Spieth just pour in the putts at Kapalua will know that he's a big danger.  My advice is don’t be gung ho;  wait until Friday to see how both do in round one.

Doc's Top Five To Watch

Jimmy Walker 20/1

Use the Force Jimmy Walker, use the Force.
A final round 73 at the TOC last Sunday saw Jimmy slip to T9 on the final leaderboard but I was impressed enough by his T6 Greens in Regulation performance to know he's already in tune with his swing. Which brings him back to Waialae where he won back to back in 2014 and 2015 and scored a T13 in 2016 during  another fast start which included the Farmer and Pebble Beach. I think 20/1 each way is a no brainer.

Scott Piercy 45/1

Piercy finished 2016  very strong with top 10's at the Safeway, CIMB Classic and Mayakoba and yes a couple of months have passed and form is the great unknown in this first full field start but I still think 45/1 is fair for a man with three top-15's in his last four starts at the Sony including a solo second in 2015.

Pat Perez 40/1

"You're shittin' me" Pat Perez is legend!

How could I leave Pat out after making us each way cash with a T3 at the TOC from 80/1 odds? Life is good for Double P right now, the injury has healed, got a win at Mayakoba, home-life with Ashley is brilliant and he's playing great golf.  Last weeks performance at Kapalua also contained a T6 GIR clip and going under par for the par 3's, 4's and 5's which my regulars will know is one of my favourite form indicators.  Four top 10's from 15 appearances at the Sony Open; I'm hoping he'll be top 5 this time around!

Will McGirt 66/1

Love the refreshing down to Earth workmanlike demeanour of  the 2016 Memorial winner and was impressed by his performance last week.  The putts didn't all drop but McGirt gave himself a tonne of chances with a second in fairways hit performance and topping the GIR stat with 64 greens.  Best of T13 on this course last year but can do better if the putter starts to hum.

Ryan Palmer 66/1

Spotted Ryan Palmer down at odds of 66/1 and surely he has to be worth a look.  He won here in 2010 and has been in the top 20 in the last three stagings.  Finished the 2016 Playoffs with three  strong performances including a T4 at the BMW.

Long Odds Glory

Jerry Kelly 125/1

One of my favourite golfers on Tour; just astounds me how he keeps on keeping on every year!  One of the keys is striking on courses that suit his game and this is one.  T9, T6, 3rd in his last three visits. A little each way flutter might lead to some fun by the TV on Sunday evening!   Watch out too for Zac Blair from 100/1.  Somewhat of a course specialist!!
