2021 Sony Open in Hawaii: How to watch the first full-field PGA Tour event of 2021

With the limited-field Tournament of Champions complete, the PGA Tour season starts to heat up once again with this week’s Sony Open in Hawaii. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament.

Sony Open Preview

Last week’s event at Kapalua marked a fitting re-start for the 2020-21 PGA Tour season. But while the Tournament of Champions featured a host of the best players in the game, only 42 golfers in all competed. That changes this week with the Sony Open, the first full-field event of the year.

The big name leading the way this week is 2020 PGA champion Collin Morikawa. Though still in the very beginning of his career, Morikawa is already considered among the game’s elite. The three-time Tour winner moved back into the Top 5 in the Official World Golf Ranking with a T7 finish last week.

Morikawa will have to contend with another three-time Tour winner who captured the victory last week, Harris English. Defending champion Cameron Smith is back as well, as are proven winners Sergio Garcia, Webb Simpson, Sungjae Im, Zach Johnson, Davis Love III and Ryan Palmer, to name just a few.
