2024 The American Express betting picks and first looks

Sungjae Im is perhaps the best horse-for-course play this week, though his odds aren't as favorable as they were in Hawaii.

Sam Burns isn't playing the best, but he's had some good results here and may be worth a small wager.

Taylor Pendrith is worth a long look here at 80/1 given his form and taking on shorter courses.

Tony Finau isn't at the best number here, but his underappreciated course record here has value to bettors.
