One of the most difficult events annually to handicap. The only angle that is etched in stone is a shootout will take place and going low is a requirement.
Also, with two easy tracks, pros will get healthy quickly. Pete Dye on Sunday will have the final say but last year two pros tied the course record with 63.
Hang on with both hands and take a few chances!
Rarefied air with a T7 last week suggests I’m ready to roll.
Uphill or downhill? Right, stay tuned…
Well, the pros will get one one each before moving to the Stadium Course for the weekend.

Waialae Country Club and the famous “W” set the backdrop for the first full field event of 2021.
Waialae has hosted all 55 previous editions and Cameron Smith is back to defend his title.
I’m ready for another week of surf, sand and stupendous views from the islands of Hawaii!
Harris English and Ryan Palmer will be the final twosome Sunday as they are tied at the top on 21-under.
Modern English would stop the world to melt with you.
Harris English is looking to pick up his first win on TOUR since 2013.
Two rounds in the books in Maui
