It’s sort of 2022, which means two things: everyone accidentally writes 2021 for next month and the return of the PGA Tour.
Following its six-week hiatus, the tour will kick off the New Year with the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which will benefit from warm temperatures and a busy field of 38 of the 39 calendar year 2021 tour winners. (Rory McIlroy is the only winner not to have played in Maui.)
Harris English will look to defend his title against Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson. This will be the first time Lefty has played this event in 21 years, but he has already won it twice (1994, 1998).
Xander Sc Chaudele, who won the Sentry ToC in 2019, is the only competing golfer who did not win a touring event last year. He still qualified thanks to his gold medal performance in Tokyo last summer.
Plantation Courses in Kapalua often give low scores, but they were insanely low in 2021, when there were only 12 total rounds above par for the week. On only three occasions in the past 13 years, the winning score has not been at least 20 below par. Last year, the Englishman won in the playoffs against Joaquin Niemann; the pair finished 25 under through 72 holes.
The winner will receive 500 FedEx Cup points and a $ 1.476 million share of the $ 8.2 million purse.
