Golf Rankings for Sony Open in Hawaii
Jimmy Walker [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #19
Walker ended the Fall Series with T10 and T4 finishes. He has now made nine straight cuts, but missed the cut at the Sony last year. In 2011 Walker left the Sony with a solo fourth.
Matt Every [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #46
Every was all over the place in 2012, but landed a T6 in his Sony debut. He's an erratic player, but one worth mentioning to start the year.
Vijay Singh [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #155
Singh hasn’t done much of anything at Waialae since 2006. After winning the event a year prior, he recorded a solo sixth result. Singh made some small runs in recent years, but hasn't shown here. Don't start him on name and reputation alone.
K.J. Choi [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #92
From 2002-09 Choi finished inside the top 15 in five of his six trips to Waialae. He won the event in 2008 after a T4 a year prior. However, Choi has now finished outside of the top 35 in three straight starts at the Sony.
Luke Guthrie [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #118
Guthrie won twice in 2012 on the PGA's top developmental series, the Nationwide Tour (which is now the Web.com Series), and ended the season with another top-10. Guthrie made three summer starts on the PGA Tour and finished inside the top 20 in each event, landing one top-five. Given his short resume, Guthrie should come at a great value.
Kyle Stanley [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #165
Stanley finished dead last by five strokes last week at Kapalua. He’s finished T23 and T68 the last two years at Waialae.
