The 2022 Sony Open in Hawaii betting odds have been released for the PGA Tour event at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The PGA Tour betting favorite this week is Cameron Smith, who comes into the week at +1100 betting odds.
Bryson DeChambeau (who withdrew on Monday morning) and Webb Simpson are on 14-to-1.
Hideki Matsuyama and Sungjae Im are both on 20-to-1.
This week, we have the Sony Open in Hawaii, with the year's first full-field event returning to Hawaii. There are 144 players in the field, and they are all players with good status, meaning it's unlikely to see many Korn Ferry Tour grads in this field in most years.
Waialae Country Club is the one and only host of this event dating back to 1965. It's a Seth Raynor design that plays somewhat tight in spots but is imminently scorable for these players. It's just not long enough to defend itself without wind. Expect deep scores this week.

2022 Sony Open in Hawaii gut-reaction tips, expert picks and futures bets
The Sony Open can be hard to predict for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that these players haven't been competing for more than a month, and many haven't been competing consistently for more than three months. The other reason is the weather can be unpredictable, even within a round.
However, Waialae Country Club isn't tricky. It can be overpowered in places, and there are a lot of birdies expected. With smaller greens, players are probably more likely to fire at targets than be more conservative.
Further, players who compete at Kapalua and then come here are much more likely to win than players who make this their first start of the year.
Bryson DeChambeau didn't play great last week, but his power game should be fascinating here.
Marc Leishman played brilliantly at Kapalua, but he couldn't produce the eye-popping rounds needed to make up weekend ground.
Kevin Na is the defending champion of the event, and he looks to become the third player ever to go back-to-back here. Looked decent in the TOC.
