2015 Hyundai Tournament to Reward Par-3 Hole-in-One
By MauiNow Staff
The 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions will be giving away two band new vehicles to the player — and his caddie — who makes a hole-in-one on No. 8 during any of the four days of competition.
This is the first time on the PGA Tour that an automobile sponsor has provided this opportunity to the competitors.
If a hole-in-one is made, Hyundai will award the player a 2015 Genesis 5.0, and the caddie will receive a 2015 Santa Fe Sport.
The eighth hole at the Kapalua Resort Plantation Course is a 203-yard par 3 over a canyon that is protected by five green-side bunkers. Lucas Glover is the only player to record a hole-in-one during the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the Kapalua Resort, which he made on the eighth hole with a 5-iron during the third round in 2006.
The Hyundai Tournament of Champions Official Pro-Am takes place Jan. 7-8 and is the only Pro-Am on the PGA Tour that guarantees participants will be paired with a tournament winner. For more information, please contact Nancy Cross at (808) 665-9160 or [email protected]
All four competitive rounds will be broadcast on Golf Channel. Follow the tournament on Facebook at www.facebook.com/HyundaiTOC or on Twitter and Instagram @HyundaiTOC to get updates and a behind-the-scenes look at the tournament preparations.
