A new year on PGA Tour kicks off this week with the star-studded 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament.

Tournament of Champions preview

The new year is upon us, and after a lengthy break for the holidays, the PGA Tour is back in action at the traditional year-opening event in Kapalua. The Tournament of Champions is the most exclusive field of the year, with only players who captured victories in the previous season invited to partake.

Among the 38 top pros in the field this week is 51-year-old Phil Mickelson. Mickelson earned is way into the TOC with his historic victory at the 2021 PGA Championship. Despite Mickelson’s 45 career wins, he hasn’t teed it up in the TOC in over 20 years, making this an extra-special appearance.

His lengthy absence aside, Mickelson has actually won the TOC on two occasions way back in the 1990s. Now he’s back and ready to face off against the likes of World No. 1 Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas and more.
