Corey Conners. Power Rank/Sony/9. 9. OWGR: 38th. 2022-23 FedEx Cup: 25th

Corey Conners has never missed a payday at Waialae. He debuted at the Sony Open in Hawaii in 2018 and took T-39th (70-66-67-69).

The Canadian has finished toward the top of the leaderboard his next four visits, recording T-3rd (68-67-64-64) in 2019, T-12th (68-71-69-66) in 2020, 11th (64-67-69-64) in 2022 and T-12th (69-66-68-65) last year.

Shooting 18 of 20 rounds in the 60s at Waialae is incredible consistency.

Last year, the Kent State alum led the field for the week in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee (4.684) as well as in greens in regulation (84.72%).

Conners is coming off a T-33rd finish last week at The Sentry.

It was a relatively successful 2023 for the 32-year-old. He won for the second time in his career at the Valero Texas Open.

Conners tallied eight top-10s including a runner-up and third place. He hasn’t missed a cut since the U.S. Open. Conners still has room for improvement at the majors, but T-12th at the PGA Championship was a positive sign.

He reemphasized last season how he’s an elite ball striker. Conners ranked 11th on the PGA Tour in SG: Off-the-Tee (.586) and 13th in SG: Tee-to-Green (1.055).

Conners isn’t crazy long, but he’s fairly accurate. Waialae is a good fit for him.

Could this be the week he wins somewhere other than TPC San Antonio?
