After an exciting playoff finish in last week's Sentry Tournament of Champions that saw Justin Thomas walk away with the victory over Patrick Reed, we get ready for the Sony Open in Hawaii.

With both of those guys teeing it up once again this week, plus a handful of other well-known golfers, we could be in for another exciting tournament.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some golfers to look out for when putting together your fantasy lineup this week.

Justin Thomas
Yes, he is the favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but there's good reason for that. Justin Thomas is arguably the hottest player on tour right now. As mentioned above, he grabbed the win last week in a playoff over Patrick Reed, which gave him his third win in his last seven starts. Thomas has also experienced success on this course, winning here in 2017.

Matt Kuchar
Kuchar had one of the best years of his career in 2019 and part of that was grabbing a win in the 2019 iteration of this event. Although, that was not his only success here. Including that win, Kuchar has placed in the top five in three of his last four starts at Waialae.

Kevin Kisner
Kevin Kisner's game is a solid match with this course. He might not have big distance off the tee, but he's an excellent ball striker and possesses a great short game. As long as Kisner can keep his driver straight, his irons and putter should keep him in contention here.
