Following the star-studded Sentry Tournament of Champions last week, the PGA Tour shifts its attention to the Sony Open in Hawaii this week. With a solid field of players, but not necessarily loaded with top-tier talent, this could be anyone's tournament to come away with.
With that in mind, let's take a look at a few guys to watch out for when putting together your fantasy team this week.
Sungjae Im has quietly become one of the better, more consistent players on tour. Although he hasn't played a ton lately, he has grabbed two top-5 finishes in his last three starts, including a T-5 finish last week in the aforementioned impressive field at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Additionally, Im has put up solid performances in his two appearances here, finishing 16th and 21st in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
Cameron Smith is the defending champ here, and while that doesn't guarantee hi anything, he has seen consistent and steady improvement on his play here over the years. He is also playing just about as well as anyone so far this season. In his last six starts, he hasn't finished outside the top-24 in any of them, which includes three top-10 finishes and two top-5 finishes, one of which was a T-2 at The Masters. If he can continue this form at a course he plays really well on, we will see him near the top of the leaderboard once again.
Collin Morikawa only has played this event once before, finishing 21st in 2020. However, he looks to be in good form coming into this one. After taking a break following a disappointing T-44 finish at The Masters, Morikawa entered Sunday with a chance to win among the elite field at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Morikawa ultimately finished 7th, but it shows the time off helped and his game is trending in the right direction. Now the super talented Morikawa comes into this event, along with a much weaker field and could be peaking at the right time.
