First Full Field Event - Sony Open - Kicks off in Hawaii
Wednesday, January 10, 2024

    The first full field event on the PGA Tour begins tomorrow at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, following the Sentry Open in Kapalua, which featured only 59 players.

    The defending champion in the $8.3 event is Si Woo Kim, who earned $1,422,000 for his victory in 2023. Chris Kirk, who picked up a cool $3.6 million for his one-stroke victory in the Sentry, will look to make it two in a row. He finished at 29 under in Kapalua, one better than Sahith Theegala, who collected $2,160,000 for second, and two better than Jordan Spieth, who took home $1,360,000.

    Scottie Scheffler, who looked good at the halfway point at 16 under, only reached 25 under by Sunday evening, and tied for fifth, earning $690,000. The only Gator in the field, Camilo Villegas, wound up tied for 50th at 12 under and banked $57,500. 

    Camilo is one of three Gators entered in the Sony, and tees off at 5:50 EST. Tyson Alexander debuts at 12:10 after his excellent rookie season on Tour in which he earned more than $1.4 million, and Billy Horschel goes at 1:20 after a disappointing 2023.
