We are officially back for the start of the 2022 Daily Fantasy Golf Season.  It was an eventful preliminary week at Kapalua last weekend.  These pros already look to be in top form breaking the 30 under mark at the Sentry.  Congratulations to the talented Australian Cameron Smith on his victory over a charging Jon Rahm.  If you didn’t have a good first week, guess what?  You’ve got another tournament this weekend to get it all back. 

This is our first full field event of the PGA Tour season at the Sony Open with 144 players entered.  The Sony is played at Waialae Country Club, which is just an island hop from the Sentry on Maui over to Oahu.  The course is a Par 70 which stretches out 7,044 yards with tight fairways (always ranked as some of the hardest on the Tour) and average size greens with Bermuda grass.  There will be plenty of obstacles for these players from palm trees to tropical vegetation all over the course.  We talked about the importance of playing against the wind last weekend and that doesn’t change this weekend.  I will say that the forecast shows pretty tame winds, nothing in the double digits.  That tells me that the scores will be low once again this weekend.

The keys to winning this weekend starts with driving accuracy.  This is not a very long course but it can punish you if you consistently miss the fairway.  This also means that hitting the greens is vital, so look for good greens in regulation stats as well.  The wind does not look like it will be much of a factor this weekend, so to me, scrambling shouldn’t be weighed as much.  We are looking for good ball strikers, and not necessarily bombers.

The field is a bit weaker this weekend but we’ve still got a lot of good options.  You will notice that I did favor the most experienced players on this track.  

ONE & DONE SELECTION:

If you don't mind burning a big name early, Corey Conners.  If you want a safe low end play, Charles Howell III.
