Sentry Tournament of Champions. PC: Kapalua Golf (1.6.19)

With his maiden PGA TOUR victory, Tyler Duncan became the final player to join the likes of the other 41 winners to qualify for the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions, while Brendon Todd picked up his second victory of the calendar year.

Winning on the PGA TOUR is the only way to qualify for the event and with no more official PGA TOUR events remaining in 2019, Duncan is the final qualifier as the tournament returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from Jan. 1-5, 2020.

The RSM Classic: Tyler Duncan collected his first career PGA TOUR victory at The RSM Classic with a birdie on the second extra hole of a sudden-death playoff over Webb Simpson. After 18 pars during the third round, the 30-year-old carded six birdies and a bogey en route to a final-round 65. Duncan made a return to the PGA TOUR this season thanks to a 25th-place finish on the Korn Ferry Tour priority ranking. The victory qualified Duncan for his first trip to The Plantation Course at Kapalua to play in the Sentry Tournament of Champions.


Mayakoba Golf Classic: Brendon Todd captured his third PGA TOUR victory at the Mayakoba Golf Classic to become the first player to win back-to-back events since Bryson DeChambeau in 2018. Todd closed with a 3-under 68 to defeat Vaughn Taylor, Carlos Ortiz and Adam Long by one stroke. With the win, Todd became the first player to win twice in the fall portion of the schedule in a single season since the TOUR went to a wraparound schedule in 2013-14. Todd qualified for his second appearance at the Sentry Tournament of Champions by virtue of his Bermuda Championship victory earlier in November.
