Location: Waialae CC, Honolulu, HI Defending Champ: Jimmy Walker Fantasy Preview 2015 Top 5 Jimmy Walker -17 Chris Kirk -16 Jerry Kelly -15 Harris English -14 Marc Leishman -13 Round by Round Leader Round 1 - Sang Moon Bae 63 Round 2 - Marc Leishman/Hudson Swafford/Paul Goydos 64 Round 3 - Will Wilcox/John Daly 64 Round 4 - Jimmy Walker 63 2016 Yahoo Expert Picks 1. MATT KUCHAR [YAHOO CLASS B] - WORLD RANKING: #16 Kuchar's profile fits this course like a glove and it's shown in the last five years. Kuch has played here four times in the last five years and hasn't finished lower than T8 in those four starts. In the four years prior to this run, he'd missed three of four cuts and his only weekend saw him finish T65. So, he's figured something out and it's time to ride him again this week. 2. JIMMY WALKER [YAHOO CLASS B] - WORLD RANKING: #12 I'm not sure there's much to say. He's won back to back at the Sony and comes in looking for the three-peat. If you want to fade him, that's fine, but I think there isn't any reason to leave him off your Group B crew this week. 3. BRANDT SNEDEKER [YAHOO CLASS B] - WORLD RANKING: #42 When Snedeker has that putter working, look out! He looked great last week and I believe his form will carry over into this week. He's one of my statistical favorites as well as he finished 2015 fifth in SG:P, 106th in SG:T2G, 35th in P4BOB, 57th in GIR 4. HARRIS ENGLISH [YAHOO CLASS A] - WORLD RANKING: #64 You'll see I'm putting a lot of faith in course history this week and English is another one with fantastic history here. English has finished in the top 10 each of the last three years. He made three of four cuts to start this season, but that hardly matters when it comes to Waialae. 5. MARC LEISHMAN [YAHOO CLASS B] - WORLD RANKING: #56 Leishman is six for six in cuts made and had his worst finish of his career last year with his T37. He has two top ten finishes and two other top 20s. So, the history is here even if he stumbled a bit last year. He's coming off a win in his last time out at the Nedback Golf Challenge in South Afirce and has been solid in the early part of this new season.
