2020 Sony Open: Which star will ‘clinch victory’ in Hawaii?



The 2020 Sony Open returns to Hawaii this year, with a long list of talented golfers out for glory at Waialae Country Club.

The action gets underway on Thursday, with the likes of Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and defending champion Matt Kuchar all raring to go.

The 144-player field is the first full-field event of the calendar year, with a $6.6 million purse up for grabs.


October 8, 2015 – South Korea, Incheon : United States Team Player Jordan Spieth action on the 15th hole during the PGA Presidents Cup round one 4some 5match openning in Jack Nicklaus GC, Incheon.

The winner will receive 500 FedExCup points, with the par 70 course now in its 55th consecutive year as a PGA Tour host. Only three other courses can boast such a record.

Kuchar started his 2019 off in the perfect way with a four-shot victory over Andrew Putnam last time out. 

It was his ninth PGA Tour victory and 100th career top ten. The defending champion is currently 22/1 to make it back-to-back wins in the competition.

But he finds himself up against 2017 winner Justin Thomas. The American not only secured the 72-hole record of 253 three years ago, but also clinched the 18-role record with a 59 in his first round.

And he’s fresh off the back of yet another recent win, clinching victory at the Sentry Tournament of Champions earlier this month.

In dramatic fashion, Thomas carded two late bogeys to finish on a four-under 69 to blow a two-shot lead. That tied with on 14 under with Xander Schauffele and Patrick Reed, before he eventually secured success with a three-foot birdie on the third play-off hole.

Thomas has been given odds of 11/2 to pick up another win Hawaii this week.

Reed, meanwhile, is currently 12/1 to lift the trophy.

And it’s 4/1 for another play-off.

Other returning champions include Patton Kizzire (2018) and Vijay Singh (2005). They are huge outsiders at 125/1 and 600/1 to win the tournament once again.

Hideki Matsuyama can be backed at 18/1, with Collin Morikawa available at 20/1.

Webb Simpson will also undoubtedly be in and around the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. He’s currently 12/1 to win the 2020 Sony Open.

As always, countless USA stars make the cut, but Australia will also be well represented in Hawaii. Marc Leishman is available at 2/1 to be their standout performer, with Cameron Smith currently 11/4.

And flying the flag for Europe are Alex Noren and Rory Sabbatini among others. They are currently 5/2 and 3/1 respectively, with Graeme McDowell given odds of 15/2 to be the top European.
