This Week in Golf

PGA Tour - The 2K10 season, as the Golf Channel insists we call it, begins this week with the annual winner's only event in Hawaii. Only players with victories in 2009 are invited to play Kapalua's Plantation Course for the SBS Championship. Two notable 2009 champions, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, are not in the field, though. They rarely play the opening event anymore. Kapalua is a course that you must go low at to win, and I believe Steve Stricker is the man to beat. His great short game will be favored here on the long par-5's and short par-4's. The former Illini also looked great during his unofficial win a few weeks ago with Jerry Kelly at the Shark Shootout. My sleeper pick in Hawaii will be Nick Watney. I am still impressed by his victory last year at Torrey Pines. He did not have a very strong showing in China during the World Cup in December, but this event can serve as a positive, fresh start. The Golf Channel will broadcast all four rounds from this beautiful tropical destination.
