Tournament: Sony Open
Date: Jan. 9-12, 2014
Venue: Waialae Golf Course
Location: Honolulu, Hawaii
Previous Winner: Russell Henley

Both Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will miss the first PGA tournament with a full field in 2014, as the Tour travels to Honolulu for Thursday's Sony Open. The par-70 Waialae Country Club has always been a low-scoring course, as evidenced by the minus-24 winning score from last year’s tournament by PGA rookie Russell Henley. Look for a shootout on the island and keep an eye on a few of the following players:

Golfers to Watch

Adam Scott (15/2): Scott was recently voted the best golfer of 2013 by the Golf Writers Association of America and followed up the distinction with a T6 finish in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions last weekend, also played in Hawaii. An American has won this tournament in each of the past five years, but Scott could very well break that streak this weekend.

Zach Johnson (12/1):
Johnson has been on an absolute tear since this past summer and has placed in the top-10 in nine of his 13 events since missing the cut in last year’s U.S. Open. He has won his past two events (Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Northwestern Mutual World Challenge) and won this Sony Open tournament back in 2009 by shooting 15 under par and closing the week with a 65, 66 and 65.

Russell Henley (60/1): Henley blew up the golf world with his record-breaking score the first time he played in this tournament, which included three rounds of 63. But he has not done much since then, missing the cut a total of eight times in 27 tournaments. He put up his best effort of this season this past weekend with a 27th-place finish in Kapalua, but faltered on Monday with a 75.

Charles Howell III (20/1): Howell already has three top-7 finishes in five tournaments this season after only two top-7's over 26 events last year. But one of the two great finishes was his T3 showing at last year's Sony Open. Howell has been spectacular at this tournament with six top-5 finishes over the past nine years, but has never been able to capture first place.

Tim Clark (20/1): Clark finished in the top-10 only three times last season while missing eight of 20 cuts, but had a T2 finish in the McGladrey Classic two tournaments ago. He was the runner-up in Sony Open tourney in his past two attempts (2011, 2013), shooting an impressive 21-under par in last year’s event. That score was at least four strokes better than any golfer other than Russell Henley. This could be Clark’s chance to get back in the winner’s circle for the first time since 2010, when he won The Players Championship.
