News and Notes
Charles Howell has made 19-of-19 cuts at the Sony Open, but surprisingly, he’s never won this event. However, he’s parlayed his last seven appearences into five top-15 finishes and three top 10s.
According to Data Golf’s Course History Index, Howell ranks third in the field in adjusted Strokes Gained at this course, trailing only Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar. Despite Howell’s success at this course, FanDuel Sportsbook is still listing him at +6000, giving him a 2% chance to win. This shouldn’t be too surprising since Howell has just three wins in 578 events.
Howell may not be the best value as an outright bet, but he’s popping as the 10th-best value in DailyRoto’s FanDuel PGA DFS projections.
