Last week we learned Jordan Speith is here to stay, Zach Johnson's still hot after beating Tiger a month ago, and Hawaii always looks good when it's -10 c (14 F) and there's 4 feet of snow in the driveway...
Zach Johnson blitzed the field while playing small ball on one of the longest courses in the PGA Tour rotation. The Sony Open is held at Waialae Country Club, a course which demands small with small greens and tight fairways. So can we see Johnson pull the Hawaii double? the smart money says yes, as he's won here in 2009.It should be noted that 18 of the 30 players who competed in Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course in Maui, will be making the trip over to the big island to play the Sony Open this week. Another fact you should consider is 9 of the last 15 winners of the Sony have competed the previous week in the TOC. So if you used guys like Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Jason Dufner, Billy Horschel and Jordan Speith last week, well you wont have to change your line up too much again this week.
Waialae Country Club founded in 1927, and designed by Seth Raynor is located in Honolulu on the big island of Hawaii. This week will play as a par 70 at 7,068 yards, the course itself was patterned after a series of famous holes from around the world, most notably the tenth hole uses features from the famous Road hole 17th from St. Andrews at the home of golf.
