Sony Open Picks - Top Heavy Field

Followers of Nic's Picks will know that I generally stay away from the market leaders but I feel this week at the Sony Open that due to the competitive edge the front runners have after competing last week as well as the course layout, that backing the shorter prices in the Sony could prove the most profitable strategy.

Sony Open Picks

Pick 1: Jim Fuyrk E/W @ 12/1 (Bet365) Last year's player of the year could be in for another great season with many tipping him for a major. Last week at Kapalua wasn't really a course for him (despite a previous win there) but it's the opposite this week at the Sony Open. Fantastic ball striking and course plotting should see Fuyrk up near the top of the leaderboard.

Pick 2: Ernie Els E/W @ 14/1 (Bet365) Perfect course for Els with his length, accuracy and ball striking ability. Showed signs last week with a brilliant 2nd round that he's already raring to go this year and had a win recently in South Africa on a course not too dissimilar to Waialae ountry Club, venue for the Sony Open.

Pick 3: Matt Kuchar E/W @ 18/1 (Bet365) In my eyes, Kuchar was the best all round player on the PGA golf tour last year and has continued where he left off already this year. Brilliant ball striker, short iron player and putter, attributes this week's Sony Open winner will need.

Pick 4: Carl Pettersson E/W @ 40/1 (general) Outstanding price on a man who was on form last week, finished in the top 10 in last year's Sony Open and who grades himself with an "A" on driving ability and putting.
