Jon Rahm ended 2019 on a tear, and oddsmakers expect that form to continue for the Spaniard into the new year.
Rahm is up to No. 3 in the world rankings and will be the highest-ranked player in the field this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. While he won three times this year on the European Tour, including the season-ending Race to Dubai title, Rahm qualified for the 34-man field in Maui by virtue of his team victory alongside Ryan Palmer at the Zurich Classic in April.
Rahm was a runner-up at Kapalua in 2018 and he is listed as a 4/1 betting favorite this week according to the oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. The 2017 winner, Justin Thomas, is next in line at 5/1, followed by defending champ Xander Schauffele at 8/1 and 2018 winner Dustin Johnson at 10/1.
