Golf Rankings for Sony Open in Hawaii
Ryan Palmer [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #29
The 2010 Sony Open winner only managed a 52nd-place finish a year ago. While he had some moments, Palmer managed just three top-10s and eight top-25s in his 24 starts of 2011.
Jimmy Walker [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #13
Last year at the Sony Open was Walker’s fifth start at the site and saw him finish a career-best fourth. Although he did not qualify for the postseason, Walker made six straight cuts to end his season with three finishes of 22nd or better -- highlighted by a top-five at The Greenbrier Classic.
Brendon de Jonge [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #82
The native of Zimbabwe entered the final round of last year’s Sony Open in eighth, but would finish 20th. De Jonge ranked 30th in All-Around Ranking in 2011 with 10 top-25 finishes in 30 starts. He made a total of 22 cuts, while adding three top-10s.
Sean O'Hair [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #156
Aside from a T12 from 2009, O’Hair has failed to impress in five career Sony Open starts. He’s coming off a mediocre performance in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and appears unlikely to offer much improvement this week.
The veteran from Japan plays a very limited Tour schedule, but has finished 12th or better in two of his last three Sony Open starts.
Jhonattan Vegas [Yahoo Class C]
Be careful if you are thinking of starting Vegas. He finished T57 in this event a year ago and is coming off a dead last finish in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
