Among 37 qualifiers, Tiger Woods likely will skip 2020 opener
14: Number of days until the first round of the PGA Tour’s Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first event of 2020, begins in Kapalua, Hawaii. The winner’s-only event will feature 37 tournament champions from the past year and be played Jan. 2-5 at Kapalua Resort’s Plantation Course on Maui island (field list). The qualifiers include the four major champions: Tiger Woods (Masters), Brooks Koepka (PGA), Gary Woodland (U.S. Open) and Shane Lowry (British Open), though Woods hasn’t appeared at Kapalua since 2005 and is not expected to play. It will be the first stop on the Tour’s annual fortnight in Hawaii, preceding the next week's full-field Sony Open in Honolulu.
