Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the plantation course at Kapalua Resort on Maui again plays host to this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Itís a top quality field as you would expect with all the competitors having won on last year's PGA Tour.
KJ Choi who shot a 62 at the 2003 Mercedes-Benz Championship holds the course record on the Plantation course. The golf course features several fantastic ocean views with steep uphill climbs and downhill approaches which gives the opportunity for some dramatic TV coverage. One hole to watch out for is the par-5 finishing hole which is a downhill 663-yard par 5.
My tip to win:
Well no surprise that Adam Scott 5/1 is the favourite here this week, the way the Australian ended the year picking up both the PGA Championship and Talisker Masters in his homeland to add to his PGA Tour win at the Barclays, and of course his first major championship victory at The Masters. Adam finished the year in second place on the world rankings and a world cup winner with compatriot Jason Day.
Webb Simpson 10/1 is another player who comes into this week in great form having won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and added another Top 10 finish at the The McGladrey Classic. Webb was also in contention in this event two years ago where his final round 68 gave him a Top 5 finish.
My each-way tip:
Jimmy Walker 33/1 started this season really well with his first PGA Tour win at the Frys.com Open, which he followed up with a twelfth place finish at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and a sixth place at the CIMB Classic. For those who have followed this guide regularly, they would have won a nice few shillings when we have tipped Jimmy to do well and you can even get him at 40/1 this week at Corals.
My outside tip:
Being a limited field this week there are not many really good outside bets here but Sang-Moon Bae 80/1 represents the best odds out there of players who have won on the PGA Tour last year. Bae took the 2013 HP Byron Nelson Championship firing three consecutive 66s in his first three rounds, if he can produce anything like that form this week then those odds will represent great value.
As always good luck
