We’ve had a nice layoff from golf for a month, but now it’s time for the season to get underway. This week the SBS Tournament of Champions takes place at the Plantation course at Kapalua in prime time. The field features some big names who are looking to knock some rust off their games as the season begins.
Hideki Matsuyama is the favorite and that is no surprise as he’s coming off of a stretch that includes four wins and two top fives in his last six starts. Just behind Matsuyama is Jordan Spieth, who won at Kapalua last season in an eight-stroke blowout over the field, and Dustin Johnson.

It’s pretty hard to make a pick that isn’t the defending champion in Jordan Spieth or the guy who has won everything over the last two months in Hideki Matsuyama, so I’m going to say that Patrick Reed gets an early win!
