Morikawa, Wolff to Play in Sentry Tournament
First-time PGA TOUR winners Collin Morikawa and Matthew Wolff have committed to play in the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions when the event returns to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from Jan. 1 to 5.
California native Collin Morikawa captured his first TOUR win at the Barracuda Championship when he birdied four of his last five holes at Montreux Golf and Country Club where the event employed the Modified Stableford scoring format. The 2020 event will mark the 22-year-old’s first appearance at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, but he’s played The Plantation Course before: “I played when I was really small, remember sitting on the wall, looking over [No.] 18. So, I’ve been there a lot of times. That places means a lot. It’s going to be very, very special to be back out there.”
Matthew Wolff collected his first career TOUR victory at the inaugural 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities when he drained a 26-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole to defeat Bryson DeChambeau and Morikawa with a six-under 65, 21-under overall. The 20-year-old became the youngest TOUR winner since Jordan Spieth (2013 John Deere Classic). Wolff will make his first trip to Maui and the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Other first-time TOUR winners during the 2019 calendar year joining Morikawa and Wolff at the Sentry Tournament of Champions include Dylan Frittelli (John Deere Clasic), Max Homa (Wells Fargo Championship), Nate Lashley (Rocket Mortgage Classic), Keith Mitchell (The Honda Classic), C.T. Pan (RBC Heritage) and Martin Trainer (Puerto Rico Open).
