Matt Kuchar will be looking to win the Sony Open in Hawaii for the second time in his career following his success of 2019.
The American lifted the trophy three years ago after defeating Andrew Putnam by four strokes to claim his second title of the 2019 season.

It was the last of Kuchar's nine PGA Tour victories, although he finished second at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and RBC Heritage later that year.
The 43-year-old was also tied for second at the Genesis Invitational in February 2020, while he could only manage third place at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play the following year.
Kuchar will compete in his fifth tournament of the 2022 campaign, although he was most recently in action at the QBE Shootout in December when he teamed up with Harris English to finish tied for third.
Speaking after the final round at the QBE Shootout, he welcomed the tournament in Naples, Florida as a warm-up to the new year.
"When you come here golf is fun and I think when we kind of step back and reflect all of us play our best when we're having fun," Kuchar said in an interview.
"I think this event is a nice little stepping stone onto really enjoying the game and really being in love with being inside the ropes and trying to execute golf shots.
"It's hard to believe there's never really an off-season, I think we've got two more weeks and then the season starts so this is almost a bit of a spring training of going back in action, what needs to be tightened up before the start of the year."
