PGA Tour Golf Betting Odds: If you're looking for the best advice for PGA wagering, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Sony Open, which will be held from Thursday, January 9th through Sunday, January 12th, 2014, at the Wialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, featuring Russell Henley, Tim Clark, Matt Kuchar and Vijay Singh.
Russell Henley set an aggregate course record at the Sony Open last season and will look to repeat as champion in 2014. The event will be held from Thursday, January 9th through Sunday, January 12th, 2014, at the Wialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii. Henley outlasted a field which included Tim Clark, Matt Kuchar and Vijay Singh, among others, in PGA wagering.
Russell Henley shot a 24-under par 256 to win by three strokes. His aggregate score topped the previous mark of 260, set by John Huston in 1998 and tied by Brad Faxon in 2001. Huston still holds the course record for shots under par at minus-28. Tim Clark finished in second place in 2013 with a 21-under, while Charles Howell III and Scott Langley tied for third place at 17-under.
Four players have won the Sony Open two times, with Ernie Els doing so most recently in back-to-back years in 2003 and 2004. Vijay Singh followed him with a victory in 2005, while David Toms, Paul Goydos, K.J. Choi, Zach Johnson, Ryan Palmer, Mark Wilson and Jonathan Wagner are other recent winners. Henley will aim to add his name to the repeat winners but there will be a field full of talented golfers aiming to knock him from his perch in PGA wagering.

How to bet on Sony Open in Hawaii
The odds of a golfer to win the Sony Open in Hawaii will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the Sony Open in Hawaii, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the Sony Open in Hawaii will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
2014 Sony Open in Hawaii Winner - Jimmy Walker wins Sony Open in Hawaii with four-birdie surge
American Jimmy Walker birdied four of the last six holes to storm clear of a crowded leaderboard and win his second PGA Tour title by one shot at the Sony Open in Hawaii on Monday morning.
The 34-year-old, who had trailed by two strokes overnight, produced ice-cool composure and superb play over the closing stretch as he fired a flawless 7-under-par 63 at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu.
Six players held at least a share of the lead during a wildly fluctuating final round but the long-hitting Walker made his timely charge with birdies at the 13th, 15th, 16th and 17th to post a 17-under total of 263.
Masters champion Adam Scott surged to just one shot off the lead with a blistering run of five birdies in his first nine holes before losing momentum after the turn on the way to a 66 and a tie for eighth at 10-under.
Overnight leader Chris Kirk recovered from a slow start to close with a five-birdie 66 and secure outright second place, finishing a stroke in front of fellow American Jerry Kelly (65), the 2002 champion at Waialae.
Kirk, playing in the final group, had a chance to force a playoff with an eagle at the par-five last but his chip from in front of the green ran eight feet past the cup and Walker was able to celebrate his second victory on the US circuit.
2013 Sony Open in Hawaii Winner - Russell Henley wins the 2013 Sony Open by 3 strokes over Tim Clark
Russell Henley won the 2013 Sony Open in Kapalua, Hawaii on Sunday with a final score of 24-under over four rounds. He tied second-place finisher Tim Clark with a low-round score of 7-under on the final day of competition. Henley made birdie on his final five holes to secure the win.
Clark shot 4-under over his final five holes to finish at 21-under overall, three strokes back of Henley but well ahead of the rest of the pack. Scott Langley entered the day in a first-place tie with Henley at 17-under overall, but shot even Sunday to finish in a third-place tie with Charles Howell III (4-under on Sunday).
Matt Kuchar, ranked No. 22 in the latest World Golf Rankings, shot 5-under to finish in a three-way tie for fifth place with Brian Stuard and Chris Kirk.
As a result of his win, Henley took home $990,000 of a $5.5 million purse. The win was his second of the 2012-13 season.
2012 Sony Open in Hawaii Winner - Wagner winner in Hawaii
Johnson Wagner picked up his third PGA Tour win at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with a final round of 67 enough to claim a two-shot victory.
Wagner was three under for the day and 13 over the event, but overnight leader Matt Every missed his chance to push for the title as he shot two over to finish tied for sixth. Four players were level in second on 11 under, with each player in with a chance of victory at some point during the day.
Carl Petterson, Sean O'Hair and Harrison Frazar all matched Wagner's 67 on the day but needed more to press for victory, while Charles Howell III managed only one under, his worst round of the competition.
Wagner's day had started with a bogey five and although he picked a shot right back up at the second he added a second bogey on six.
He again followed that with a birdie at the next hole and went round the back nine in three under, with a pressure putt from the sleeve of the green on the 15th the highlight.
Wagner almost gave himself an unnecessary problem on the final green when he left a birdie attempt short and then almost botched the tap-in putt, but luck stayed with him.
