The second PGA Tour event of 2022 is also the second straight in Hawaii. After a week on the island of Maui, the Tour heads to Oahu for the Sony Open in Hawaii, the first full-field event of the new year.
Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama and 2020 U.S. Open champ Bryson DeChambeau headline the 144-golfer field at Waialae Country Club.
Defending champ Kevin Na, who birdied the 18th hole a year ago to win, is also set to go, as is Sungjae Im and Billy Horschel. Jim Furyk and Jerry Kelly, who mostly play on PGA Tour Champions, are in the field on sponsor exemptions.
DeChambeau is a big get for this event, which doesn’t have the star power that was featured in the winners-only Sentry Tournament of Champions. DeChambeau has played in the Sony twice before, most recently in 2019 when he tied for 10th.
There will be 24 players doing the Hawaii double dip in 2022.
