The Sentry Tournament of Champions is played at the Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course in Maui, Hawaii each January.
The tournament has a history dating back to 1953, but it has undergone various format changes and relocations before settling in Maui. The current format of including only tournament winners from the previous year has been in place since the 1980s.
The Sentry Tournament of Champions has become a standard fixture to begin each calendar year. Winners from all PGA Tour events from the previous year are invited to compete on the stunning Plantation Course at Kapalua in Maui, Hawaii.
This means that participants are all recent tournament champions, creating a gathering of some of the best and most successful players from the preceding season.
While the Sentry is the first tournament of the calendar year the Fedex Cup is already well underway.
