Sony Open In Hawaii – 3 PGA Players To Watch
Cameron Smith – will look to defend his title when the 2021 Sony Open tees off on Thursday. Smith stunned the PGA with an 11-under par performance last year, which helped him claim his second career victory on the PGA Tour. Keep an eye on Cameron Smith this week as he did finish inside the top-10 in two of his last three official starts on the PGA Tour. Currently Smith is listed as a 28-1 long shot in the 2021 Sony Open.
Joaquin Niemann – enters this week’s event full of confidence. That’s because the 22-year-old Chilean has finished T-17 or better in four of his last six starts, which includes a runner-up finish last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Waialae CC is a shorter course than the one last week and to WIN you need to be able to putt! Got a feeling that this plays right into the strengths of Niemann.
Harris English – has flashed some really good form in the past few months. As a result of his form he won for the 1st time in 7 years on the PGA tour. We are making the recommendation to roll with Harris again!
“It feels amazing. All the hard work that has gone into this, all the highs and lows of golf that it brings over a career and I feel like I’ve gotten out of my valley and getting back to the tournaments and some of the quality of golf that I know I can play,” – Harris English

PGA Tournament Preview Facts
- The Waialae course is often termed “player friendly,” which is a way of saying the golf course doesn’t have a lot of punishing hazards or rough. Low scores are available to those playing well.
- Waialae CC was the site of Tadd Fujikawa’s 2007 Sony Open exploits: He made the cut at age 16, the youngest golfer in more than 50 years to make a PGA Tour cut.
