Xander Schauffele (10-1), Top 10 (-125)
Bearman: Schauffele hasn’t obtained since his victory at Kapalua in 2019, however he virtually went support-to-support, losing in a playoff to Thomas final year. Strokes obtained placing is always necessary at Kapalua, which has above-common inexperienced sizes. Schauffele is 13th in that metric from the autumn fragment of the 2020-21 season. He done in the waste 17 in all four drop occasions, collectively with the rescheduled U.S. Initiate (fifth) and Masters (T-17th), so firing off a high-10 (-125) is never in actuality a unsuitable option, either.
