The Sony Open has been full of surprises in the first two rounds, what will come in the final two?
The Sony Open is underway, and as things roll on at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, players are starting to separate into true contenders and better-luck-next-years.
As things keep going in Hawaii, there are a few players prepared to make some noise in the final two rounds of the tournament.
Here are five golfers to keep your eye on at the 2013 Sony Open.
Russell Henley is the current leader and is playing very strong golf in Hawaii.
Russell Henley is one of the 26 players who qualified for a PGA Tour card from the Web.com Tour, and he's come out guns-a-blazin'.
Henley came out of Round 2 with a solid 14-under at the Sony Open and has been hanging out around the top spot for most of the early rounds of the tournament.
He is a very talented young golfer, and he's looking to make some noise on the PGA tour—especially if he can keep playing like he has in the first two rounds in Hawaii.
Langley has come out of nowhere and is playing very well at the Sony Open.
PGA Tour rookie Scott Langley has come out of nowhere at the Sony Open. Langley had an unconscious first round in Hawaii in which he had six birdies and one eagle, which led to a final first-round score of 62—eight under par for the course.
Langley was an NCAA individual champion at the University of Illinois and put up a 66 in his second round in Hawaii.
He may be a tour freshman, but if he can recreate his first-round play in his last two rounds, this freshman may become the first PGA rookie to win this event since it was moved to January.
Howell III is very familiar with the Sony Open and will be a big name to watch as the Sony Open goes on.
Howell III is making his 13th straight appearance at the Sony Open. Last year, he tied for second at the event, and he has six top-five finishes in his history at the event.
Howell III has a lot of history at the Sony Open, and this year could be his year to secure the top spot at the tournament and an invitation to the Masters.
Tommy Gainey will have to make an impressive comeback at the Sony Open, but he has been playing very well as of late.
Tommy Gainey hasn't played well in the past at the Sony Open. However, he had a very good showing at Kapalua and led the PGA Tour in total driving in 2012.
He put up a 66 in the first round but couldn't keep it up, posting a 69 in his second round, making his total score so far at five-under par.
Gainey dropped seven spots in the rankings since the first round, but, thankfully for him, there is a lot of golf to be played and this talented driver has a chance to be in it at the end.
Vijay Singh is a PGA veteran and has history at the Sony Open.
Vijay Singh is a PGA veteran and has played pretty well so far at the 2013 Sony Open.
He posted a 67 in each of the first two rounds, giving him a total of six-under par for the tournament so far.
Another thing Singh has going for him in Hawaii is his previous success at this event. In 2005, he won the Sony Open.
This veteran has the skills to take over this event and is leading the field in GIR percentage (green in regulation) with 91.7 percent.
If Langley can keep playing like he is he'll have a solid chance at winning the 2013 Sony Open.
While these five have a great chance at taking the title at the 2013 Sony Open, there is a lot of golf left to be played.
