Were back at in 2014 sifting through the contenders and pretenders bringing you high quality picks that a Mother would be proud of! This week were headed to sunny Honolulu home to sunny skies, sandy beaches, and more rehab centers per capita than anywhere in the world (allegedly). Yep, the waters of Waialae Bay shine like crystal-meth for the PGA Tour boys as Waialae Country Club hosts the 2014 Sony Open in Hawaii!! Surprisingly, almost half of the 30 qualifiers for last weeks Hyundai (in Hawaii) arent sticking around for the rest of their vacation. Waialae Country Club is tight and the 7,004 yard Par 70 course is decidedly set up strictly for right-to-left players. The problem is; 460cc Drivers on Tour have allowed most players to switch to a soft/power fade. Also, last weeks Hyundai is like crossing the Alps in gravel carts for the Boyz and with the West Coast Swing coming up, most players from last week need a stinkin break! But, this Sony Open will have plenty of missed 2-footers, chili-dipped wedges, and shanked 6-irons (see: Steve Stricker-2013 US Open) to last a weekend! Lets take a look at the field and pick a Winner!

Like clockwork, the Bucket List foursome of Scott Verlank, Woody Austin, Justin Leonard, and Fred Funk and Paul Goydos leading the band willonce againtake us back in remembrance of the roaring 20s and a time before Talkies! All 5 of these dinosaurs >>> No Chance! Dont they have Golf baseball cards for these geriatrics to be remembered by? My Lord! Anyway; when the field needs filled someone gets on the horn and calls AARP and THESE guys show up. Enough already! Kuchar is putting well and in the field; Briny Baird carrying his sun-block 2450 is fired up and ready to go; Chris Kirk fired a 66 at Kapalua before putting it in neutral; Zach Johnson is going for 3-in-a-row (statistically unlikely); Billy Hurley is the defending champ and back in the field; Father Time Kenny Perry and Pat Perez (Pat Perez?????) got their itineraries and destinations wrong this time, Fellas!! The Fountain of Youth is in South Beach!!!

Johnson cleaned up the last 2 tournaments winning both with awesome putting. Kuchar also hit the ball nicely and followed up with some of the best inside 4 feet putting sincewellhis 2013 Masters! Chris Kirk is just a Player that IS going to winhis swing speaks of a fifth gear that hasnt been seen on Tour since Tiger went on a rampage (circa the entire turn of the Centuryjust before the 3-iron thru the Denali)! Speith is up and runningand contendingand he WILL win multiple times on Tour this yearwith a Major or two thrown in for spite! Charles Howell III and any other silver-spooner will clock in and out, receive their paycheck, and swear they worked for itbut will have no chance! Heres how I see itSpeith on topJohnson contendingChris Kirk about 3 tourneys away from winning but closing hard down the stretch. Kucharwith a low round (think 63) wins if Speith starts looking for ATMs too soon!

Short Favorite: Jordan Speith (16 Odds to 1 to Win)
I know, I know, Zach Johnson should be my first pick butwinning 3 in a row on Tourthat hasnt been done since 2004 (Vijay Singh)!! Speith will be there at the endgreat player, knows how to win, wants to win!.

Middle of the Road: Matt Kuchar (14 Odds to 1 to Win)
His putter is heating up!!! Watch out!!! He can really take it low if his putter starts chirping!.

Longshot: Chris Kirk (28 Odds to 1 to Win)
Again, my next GREAT player on the PGA Tour. When Chris quits making those 3 critical mistakes over 4 rounds he will distance the field. If he chips in a few times, he might now have to play better than he is playing right now!.

Charles Howell III vs. Jason Dufner (our pick to win: Jason Dufner)
You dont have to read my articles too long to understand why ANY vs Howell III is my pick to win (except Sergio!). Howell III is a rich mans Poor Man and a poor mans worst enemyhe plays like he doesnt need it, putts like he never had to, and carries himself like a DIVA at a homeless shelter! Gimme heart.Gimme Dufner!!!

Zach Johnson vs. Matt Kuchar (our pick to win: Matt Kuchar)
3-in-a-row? I dont think so. Johnsons a great guygood family guy, but 3-in-a-row is a No Go and I see Kuchar possibly winning!
