28 players will compete in the opening US PGA Tour event of the year at Plantation Course, Kapalua in Hawaii this week with Jonathan Byrd looking to emulate Geoff Ogilvy who won back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010. Byrd beat Robert Garrigus in a playoff last January to win his second PGA Tour title since turning pro in 2000 and will be looking for another flying start to the New Year.
Steve Stricker and Webb Simpson lead the field and are available at odds of 17/2 with Stan James. Stricker finished fourth last year and the world number six is looking to go one better than his best finish at Plantation when he lost in a playoff to Daniel Chopra in 2008. Stricker and Simpson were members of the USA team that won the Presidents Cup in November and Simpson will be hoping to maintain the momentum of his late 2011 form which saw him pick up the Wyndham Championship in August, the Deutsche Bank Championship in September and another four top ten finishes before breaking off for the season in November.
FedExCup winner Bill Haas returns to Hawaii after enjoying a good tournament in 2011. Haas was making his debut in the Tournament of Champions and finished in eighth place, the 29-year-old from North Carolina is 20/1 with Ladbrokes to start the year with victory at Kapalua. The wide open spaces of the Plantation Course could suit the power and precision of big hitting Gary Woodland who will be making his first appearance at the Tournament of Champions. Woodland, who turned pro in 2007, won his first tour event at the Transitions last March and went on to make seven top twenty finishes in his 10 PGA Tour events. The 27-year-old was ranked 12th in greens hit to regulation in 2011 and is available at odds of 18/1 with Stan James.
Nick Watney will be a popular choice with golf punters. Watney finished third on the PGA Tour money list after leading the FedExCup points during the regular season. The dynamic Californian was a two-time winner last year and is 10/1 with Ladbrokes to start the year in style with a win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
