Jimmy Walker is aiming for a three peat at the 2016 Sony Open

Jimmy Walker 10/1 has won the Sony Open for the past two years and his bid for a three-peat was done no damage at all by a solid T10 at the Tournament of Champions last week.  A Sunday 72 didn’t help matters much but an overall T4 putting performance heading to Waialae indicates Jimmy is up for this.

Doc’s Top Five Players To Watch At The 2016 Sony Open

Marc Leishman 40/1

When the wind blows, and it will blow in Hawaii, you’ll go a long way to find better than Marc Leishman.  The 2015 Open champion runner up ended 2015 with a T11 at the WGC HSBC and win at the Nedbank and I’m betting he will be itching to get off to a flyer this week.  Solo fifth here in 2014 and T9 in 2013.  My tip of the week.

Chris Kirk 35/1

Chris Kirk must love Honolulu!  He has finished in the top five in four of his last five appearances an the event.  His T26 in 2015 was even impressive in that rounds of 66, 67, and a closing 64 sandwiched a poor Saturday 74.  The 2015 Colonial winner is the horse for the course.

Harris English 33/1

With three top-10’s in the last three years here, Harris English could be classed as a strong season starter.  T3 in 2015 when he drove well, hit the greens and bested the par-4’s.  Five top 25 finishes to end 2015 and a decent each way shot to perform this week.

Russell Henley 35/1

Russell set the tournament record winning score of 24 under par when he won here in 2013 and though he hasn’t hit those heights since, looks equipped to contend again this year.  Finished 2015 with a solid 10th at The Shriners and T6 at the RSM Classic.

Scott Piercy 45/1

The 2015 Barbasol winner didn’t set the world alight with a T24 at Kapalua last week but a repeat of his T6 putting performance will yield a better result this week.  Solo second here last year and has the credentials to score on this tricky 7,044 yard par 70.
