With the new PGA Tour season in full swing, PGA Tour pros are heading down to Hawai'i for the Sony Open.

Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

Sony Open Fantasy

Cameron Smith:
Cameron Smith is coming off a huge win at the Sentry Tournament of Champions last week and there is reason to believe that success will continue here at the Sony Open. For starters, Smith won this event in 2020. He also has been playing great golf outside of last week's win, with two top-10 finishes in his three other events this season. Smith ranks No. 1 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Total this season, No. 4 in SG: Putting and No. 8 in SG: Approach The Green.

Marc Leishman:
Marc Leishman has had a fantastic start to this season, already grabbing three top-10 finishes and two top-five finishes in his five starts. He's coming off a solid 10th place finish last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. If Leishman can continue his current form combined at a place and a region where he's already had success, he is a serious contender this week.

Kevin Na:
Kevin Na comes into this event with a similar recipe to Smith. Na is the defending champion at this event, and is coming off a win at the QBE Shootout two starts ago. While Na's stroked gained stats don't match up to Smith's yet this season, he still ranks No. 7 on tour in Driving Accuracy. He's also got a ton of experience at this event, and 4 top-10 finishes in 14 starts here.
