The Daily Spin – Sony Open


Welcome to the first ‘real’ week of the season. The Tournament of Champions is always a nice warmup and the stars really came out last week and performed well, but Kapalua without wind is a totally defenseless course and it showed in a big way as we saw a scoring display for the ages. Cam Smith managed to stare down #1 player in the world, Jon Rahm for the final two rounds to post one of the more impressive wins you will see all year. The mullet wearing wonder that is Cam Smith looked totally relaxed and at ease the final two rounds and was unflappable even as Rahm tied the course record on Saturday afternoon just hours after Justin Thomas had broken it. On paper, Cam may not have appeared to be the most obvious choice to win last week, but he’s really evolved in his game the last two years. If I asked you who led the tour in Par 5 Scoring last season, Cam Smith’s name probably would not be the first one that came to mind and yet it is true. It was great to see many of you take advantage of our betting picks for the week as both Stat Boy and Nick hit Cam at 22-1 to get our 2022 off and running on a positive note. If you were fortunate enough like I was to have Cam on your cash game roster, things probably ended up working out well for you over the weekend. Moving forward, it will not be quite so easy.


We have a couple of advertisers that I would love for you guys to check out this year. The first one is ICON Meals. I know how busy things can get this time of year when it comes to trying to eat healthy. Who has time to prepare every meal? It is so much easier to just order something for delivery or pop a pizza in the oven. However, as your waistline expands and your energy dribbles away, it gets harder and harder to get back on track. That is where ICON Meals can help you out. I have personally been using these meals every week for the last 8 months and it has been an amazing time saver while also keeping me on the right track to stay healthy. You can select from a menu or customize your meals with the veggies and proteins that you like. I just finished up a Diablo Shrimp meal that tasted fantastic and had a lot more of a kick than what you are used to for a meal delivery service. The best part is that I never throw any of these meals away. You can even freeze them if you like. They arrive vacuum packed in dry ice and are ready to heat up and eat right away.

You’ll enjoy the food and you’ll be helping us out. Even if you might only be a little bit interested, give the link below a click to help us generate a little traffic. Also, if you have any questions about the food, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to answer them.

We have one other sponsor to tell you about. If you have not tried CBD previously, but our curious, give Paloma Verde a looks this week. Paloma Verde CBD is a family owned business out of San Antonio, Texas run by Carlos and Vanessa Abelar. Cannabidiol or CBD for short, is a natural chemical compound found in the hemp plant and its cousin cannabis. CBD has a rich history and a variety of benefits ranging from reducing inflammation to helping you get a good night’s sleep, without any psychoactive effects. For me, using CBD has helped to reduce tension, relax during the day and I use the Sports Cream on my back and shoulder to help alleviate soreness when my muscles get tight.

My favorites that I personally use:

Strawberry Gummies – they taste great, absorb quickly and help to ease anxiety and keep me focused when I am working throughout the afternoon and evening.

Cool Menthol Sports Cream – It smells great, it’s good for your skin and helps to ease away those aches and pains that I get in my shoulder and lower back.

Nano CBD Softgels (w melatonin) – Do you have trouble settling down each night when it is time to sleep? You are not alone. This mix of CBD and melatonin will help you to relax and then help you to stay asleep throughout the night.

Want to try a sample of a few favorites? Check out the Unregistered Combo Pack for the best deal of all!

If you have noticed over the last couple of years, many players on the PGA Tour are now using CBD on a regular basis with many even using it while they play in the form of chewing gum.
