Golf betting for the first full field of the 2009 PGA season gets underway in mid-January as the Sony Open in Hawaii takes place at Waialae Country Club in Oahu and begins on Thursday, January 15th.
Online golf betting history tells us that K.J. Choi is the defending champ. Since the Sony Open in Hawaii is the first full field event of the season, it begins the FedExCup race with the winner getting 4,500 points.
Golf betting history determines that some big names have won in Hawaii in the past. Former online golf betting champs include Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Paul Azinger, Jerry Kelly and others. This is normally a very exciting tournament as golf betting statistics show. Last year was somewhat of an exception to that rule since K.J. Choi started with rounds of 64, 65 and 66 and cruised to a three-shot victory in golf betting over Rory Sabbatini. Jerry Kelly finished in third place on the online golf betting leaderboard. Finishing in a four-way tie for fourth place in golf betting was Steve Stricker, Pat Perez, Steve Marino and Kevin Na.
Golf betting stats indicate that Paul Goydos was the winner in 2007 of the Sony Open in Hawaii. David Toms was the golf betting winner in 2006. Vijay Singh topped the leaderboard for golf betting gamblers in 2005. Ernie Els won in 2003 and 2004. Jerry Kelly got the win in 2002. Bred Faxon was the 2001 winner. Paul Azinger won in 2000 and Jeff Sluman took the title in 1999.
A total of 144 players will be in the golf betting field competing for the Sony Open in Hawaii title. Choi should be one of the golf betting favorites, especially since he is the defending champ and one of the top players in the world today.
Golf betting from Hawaii is always exciting as the top players in the world begin their seasons. The 2009 golf betting season should be excellent with Tiger Woods getting back into action and young players like Anthony Kim and K.J. Choi looking to challenge.
