This week, the PGA Tour presents golf fans with the first full field event of the season, the 2024 Sony Open.

The 2024 Sony Open will be played at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii. The golf course is a par 70 that measures approximately 7,044 yards. 

Before I discuss my favorite tournament matchup bets for the 2024 Sony Open let's take a quick look at the current top five golfers in overall scoring average on the PGA Tour that are in this week's field.

Top Five Golfers in GIR

  • Chris Kirk 70.38
  • Byeong-Hun An 71.36
  • Brian Harman 71.38
  • J.T. Poston 71.40
  • Eric Cole 72.13

Now that we have ascertained who the current top five golfers in overall scoring average are on the PGA Tour (in this week's field) let's turn our attention to my favorite tournament matchup bets for this week's 2024 Sony Open.

Lucas Glover +100 over Adam Svensson

Since the beginning of August, Lucas Glover has played eight tournaments on the PGA Tour. In those eight events just noted, Glover accumulated six top 29 finishes, including two wins (2023 Wyndham Championship: 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship).    

In relation to this week's current listed 2023 Sony Open field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Lucas Glover ranks seventh in GIR (greens in regulation), 16th in strokes gained approach, first in driving accuracy, and 16th in proximity to the hole.

Additionally, Lucas Glover finished fifth at the 2022 Sony Open.    

Justin Rose +100 over Brendon Todd

Four weeks ago, Justin Rose fired a final round 67 at the 2023 Hero World Challenge en route to an eventual eighth place finish. More recently, Justin Rose fired a final round 61 at last week's 2024 Sentry.

It should also be noted that Justin Rose has posted a quality result at this event in the past. Justin Rose finished second at the 2017 Sony Open.

In summary, I am backing Justin Rose to defeat Brendon Todd in this tournament matchup bet at odds of +100.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
