Webb Simpson brings strong record into Sony Open

American has posted 5 straight results of 15th or better at Waialae Country Club and hasn’t missed a cut in 10 starts in Honolulu

5: Number of consecutive finishes of 15th or better at the PGA Tour's Sony Open for American Webb Simpson, who enters this week’s second consecutive event in Hawaii as the favorite (tee times). Simpson, 35, is a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour who is coming off of a two-victory year. He finished third last year in the Sony Open at Honolulu’s Waialae Country Club and tied for fourth in 2018 (he skipped the event in 2019). In 10 starts at Waialae, he has not missed a cut. Simpson tied for 17th last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Resort’s Plantation Course on Maui island after recovering from a bout of COVID-19. Simpson was listed by oddsmaker William Hill as the 12-1 favorite. The winner will earn $1.188 million from the $6.6 million purse.
