Bubba Watson headlines this week’s field

Usually I put the quote “set your DVR” at the font of these posts.  But since the Hyundai Tournament of Champions is in Hawaii, the live broadcast (starting Friday) is in prime time.  See TV times below.

The PGA Tour season starts this week at the Plantation Course at Kapalua, in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii.  This is an event open to winners on the 2012 PGA Tour, resulting in a field of 30.  This 72 hole stroke play event is a no-cut affair which usually produces some of the longest drives of the year with the elevation changes and prevailing winds at Kapalua.  Fun golf for TV.

Tournament Info

  • Purse: $5.7 million
  • Winner’s Share: $1.12 million
  • Defending Champion: Steve Stricker
