Best Sony Open predictions for 2023

The model is in for one big surprise at the 2023 Sony Open: Matsuyama, the defending champion and one of the favorites with a score of 15-1, stumbles this week and narrowly breaks into the top 10. Matsuyama faced a five-stroke deficit with just nine holes. play last year but shot 31 into the back nine and finished 23 short in a week.

However, Matsuyama has been wildly inconsistent this season, finishing T-21 or worse in each of his last five PGA Tour starts. In addition, Matsuyama has struggled a lot with his accuracy this season, finishing 136th on the tour among the Greens in terms of percentage of rules (66.98%). He’s not the best pick to win all of this, and there are far better values ​​in the 2023 Sony Open field.

Another surprise: K. H. Lee, a 34-1 long-range shot, is on a solid path to the title. Lee, who turned pro in 2010 and joined the PGA Tour in 2018, is on track for the best start to his career. He’s been in the top 10 three times in the last four tournaments and has shot below par in every round of those four tournaments. In addition, Lee’s three top 10 finishes are already career highs.

Lee has also broken par in each of his last eight rounds at Waialae Country Club, so he’s clearly comfortable on the track. Lee is one of the best hitters in the world, with a top 25 rating in driving accuracy percentage (66.79%), percentage of greens in rule (77.22%) and shots made: tee to green (1.523). In addition, his current 160-hole, three-stroke streak is the third longest on the tour, so his all-round play should make him highly desirable in betting at the 2023 Sony Open.
