Hyundai Tournament of Champions: Four to back from the first day two-balls at Kapalua

Kevin Stadler is Dan's first selection at the Hyundai

It's the first PGA Tour event of the year and Dan Geraghty is hunting for profit with the following quartet...

"Angel Cabrera has been struggling with his game and suffered a surprising missed cut in a poor field in this national open last time out. I'm happy to take the Argentinian on with the underrated Charley Hoffman, who won his last tournament in fine style (OHL Classic)."

Back Charley Hoffman @ 2.021/1


Nick Taylor's 2014 win at the Sanderson Farms Championship was a surprise to say the least - it was also the only time the young Canadian broke 70 in round one on the PGA tour last year. It's therefore surprising to see 'Baby Walrus' Kevin Stadler priced up at even money to outscore his inexperienced opponent on day one.

Kapalua debutant Matt Jones' win in April last year was long overdue but the Australian hasn't managed a top ten since then and has only one top 20 in that time. His playing partner Ben Crane also struggled at times last year, but has plenty of course experience.

Angel Cabrera has been struggling with his game and suffered a surprising missed cut in a poor field in this national open last time out. I'm happy to take the Argentinian on with the underrated Charley Hoffman, who won his last tournament in fine style (OHL Classic).

Camilo Villegas celebrates his 33rd birthday this week and he will be delighted to be back celebrating in Hawaii despite being disqualified from this tournament last time he was here (on his 29th birthday) when a viewer rang in after spotting a rules violation. Nevertheless, Villegas career is back on track and he can put his experience to good use and outscore playing partner (course debutant) Chesson Hadley on day one.
