2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions


Plantation Course
Kapalua, Hawaii
6-10 January 2021  

The 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions will take place at the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii between 6 and 10 January.

This will be the 68th edition of the tournament and its field is restricted to golfers who won a tournament on the tour during the previous calendar year.

However, for the 2021 tournament, the PGA Tour announced that the field would be expanded to include the 30 players that qualified for the 2020 Tour Championship, in addition to tournament winners during the 2020 calendar year.

The change was made following the cancellation of ten tournaments due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

American player Justin Thomas is the defending champion having won the Tournament of Champions for the second time last year.

Thomas won in a playoff over his compatriots Xander Schauffele and Patrick Reed at the Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii.

Thomas will face stiff competition from Bryson DeChambeau, Collin Morikawa and Jon Rahm, who have committed to play in the 2021 field event, while Abraham Ancer, Tony Finau, Lanto Griffin and Scottie Scheffler will also be part of the field.
