  • WGT GOLF PREVIEW: Sony Open in Hawaii

    10 Jan 2012

    Golf Fans, the PGA Tour is back! The first full-field golf tournament of the 2012 PGA season is the Sony Open in Hawaii.

    This kick-off PGA tournament is one of the top golf charity events, supporting the Friends of Hawaii charity.

    Top PGA players will be pitting their golf skills against a full field. Based on his win last week, Steve Stricker is a favorite in this week's Sony Open, along with defending champion Mark Wilson, and last week's top-finishing players, including Keegan Bradley, KJ Choi, Rory Sabbatini and Webb Simpson. And keep an eye on Zach Johnson, who came on strong at the end of last season.

    Stay tuned to WGT for daily updates and the PGA Leaderboard, as well as s special offer on WGT this weekend.
