Sony Open in Hawaii – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

We’re Island hopping from Maui to Honolulu as the PGA Tour moves into week two of its 2024 schedule.

The Sony Open is one of the longest-running events on the PGA Tour and one look at Waialae Country Club can tell you why. It’s a beautiful little jewel of a course sitting on the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

It’s also a much different proposition to Maui last week. This is a short, tight, twisting course, where accuracy off the tees counts for a great deal when trying to get close on these small, tricky greens.

Once again weather conditions will mean a great deal. The trade winds do tend to kick up in the afternoon, so a clean getaway off an early tee time on Thursday could count for a lot come Sunday.

Blue Horseshoe Loves:

Chris Kirk – Currently at

Kirk won well in Maui last week. He looked like he was swinging in his sleep half the time. When Kirk is in this zone, he’s properly good and it’s certainly not inconceivable that he could saunter on over to Maui and carry right on firing them close with his tremendous iron game. He’s played well at Waialae before. Just last year he finished third, two shots behind the winner, Si Woo Kim, so he knows how to get it done around here. Don’t be surprised to see Kirk at the point end of the leaderboard again this weekend.

Akshay Bhatia – Currently at

Bhatia seems to excel in Island golf conditions. He’s won twice in the Caribbean, once on the Korn Ferry Tour and once on the PGA Tour. He also had every chance at the Sentry last week. He started the day in second position, one shot behind Kirk, before enduring a fairly flat final round. I have a feeling Bhatia will be very happy to stay in these island conditions and carry right on with his good form. He also looks quite at home with his new putter. Bhatia looks decent each way value here.

Vincent Norrman – Currently at

This price is WAY over the odds for a player of this kids talent. Norrman is already a PGA Tour and European Tour winner, so he knows how to get it done on the big stage and he’s not afraid of the prospect. He’s a young man, who’s name should be firmly in your tracker this year as he has the quality to win a big one at any old money. His ball striking game is excellent and here at Waialae that is imperative. I’m a bit excited about this bet just quietly.

Andrew Novak – Currently at

Novak finished 12th here last year. He’s not a big driver of the ball and has to wait for short, technical courses such as this one before he can excel. After the good performance at the Sony Open last year, he went on to register a couple of encouraging top ten finishes throughout the rest of the season. This is definitely a bit of an exotic speculator, but I like what I saw from Novak last year. It could just be an idea to keep an eye on him in running, as he could still represent value even quite late in the piece if he’s there or there abouts
