I am still on cloud 9 with the Justin Thomas win last week....not necessarily for Justin but the fact he beat Patrick Reed...I apologize for nothing! The Hawaii swing continues this week with the Sony Open in Honolulu. Not going to lie, I am really enjoying this primetime golf, getting off work and throwing on a few hours of golf in beautiful Hawaii...that could be heaven. Well besides actually being on Tour and playing in Hawaii. The views alone would be worth the trip but I digress.
Back to what this post is actually about and that is the actual golf - Matt Kuchar is the reigning champion with a score of -22 and won a whopping $1.15M...I'll keep the tipping caddie jokes out. Our picks for the week are as follows:
- Webb Simpson (+1200)
Not only has Webb Simpson continue to play solid golf as he holds down the #12 ranking in the OWGR, he is my pick because Tiger left him to the wolves by sticking him with Patrick Reed for the weekend at the Presidents Cup. Good things are heading your way Mr. Simpson, you have earned it.
- Justin Thomas (+500)
All I have to say here is I LOVE ME SOME ME!
- J.T. Poston (+5000)
This Western Carolina Catamount Alum has a chance to break through even further with the Sony Open. After a top 20 in 2019 he is a solid long shot to compete to win. At +5000, it doesn't hurt to throw a few $$ that way.
- Kevin Kisner (+4000)
I'll pick Kisner from this point forward to win anything...I'm well aware it won't happen every time buuuuuuuut I'm all in on Kisner. He is going to physically fight p-reed at some point this year and I'm all for it. Wheels Up Kiz.
- Tyler Ota (+100000)
Only reason Tyler is on here is because HE IS +100000 to win! That's insane, throw $5 on this and just watch for the pure enjoyment of if this hits. Going to Vegas immediately if this hits!
Good luck to everyone on your picks this week...I'm currently waiting for the PowerBall to hit tonight so tomorrow morning I may have won $258M. Hey, one can dream. Speaking of that, if you won the lottery where would you live?
