Limited field event returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua next week
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii – The Sentry Tournament of Champions today announced past champions Justin Thomas, of Team Troon, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele have committed to play in the 2021 limited field event when the tournament returns to Maui from Jan. 6-10.
The 2002 Sentry Tournament of Champions winner Garcia earned his 11th career PGA TOUR victory, and first win since the 2017 Masters Tournament, at the Sanderson Farms Championship in October. With the win, Garcia owns victories in three different decades on TOUR (2000s, 2010s, 2020s), the 78th player to achieve this feat (most recent – Stewart Cink/2020 Safeway Open). The 2021 event will be the 40-year-old’s fifth trip, and first since 2006, to The Plantation Course at Kapalua.
Two-time Sentry Tournament of Champions winner Johnson (2013, 2018) collected four victories this calendar year, including the FedExCup title and the 2020 Master Tournament title. Johnson originally qualified for his return to Maui when he won the Travelers Championship in June, followed by wins at THE NORTHERN TRUST, TOUR Championship and the Masters Tournament. In 10 previous appearances at The Plantation Course at Kapalua, the 24-time TOUR winner owns eight top-10s, including two victories and a T7 finish in the 2020 event.
