The list can be found via this link. That includes Tom Kim (14), Jordan Spieth (15), Billy Horschel (18), Sungjae Im (19), Hideki Matsuyama (21), Brian Harman and Keegan Bradley (25), who all played in last week's Sentry Tournament of Champions. Also, Tom Hoge (30), Russell Henley (31), Corey Connors (34) and KH Lee (36) are also in the Sony field and competed last week in the Tournament of Champions winners event.

Sony Open Picks & Predictions

Russell Henley lost in a playoff at the Sony Open last year, and the 33-year-old University of Georgia golfer will be energized by his alma mater's NCAA football championship game. Henley's -23 under par score last year included a 62-63 start, and he's shot 66 or better in six of his last eight rounds at Waialae Country Club. The short-hitting 4-time PGA Tour winner thrives on the tighter, positional golf course and currently ranks No. 1 on Tour in driving accuracy, hitting better than 77% of fairways. Henley won in November on a similar tight, positional course at Mayakoba in Mexico. His ball striking, approach and tee-to-green stats are all solid and top-25 in his last 36 rounds. His ability to contend and win again, as he did here in 2013, will be whether he's hitting the ball closer to the hole, and his sub-par short game and poor putting stats improve.

Bet: Russell Henley to win (+2100)
