Sentry Tournament of Champions - DraftKings $600K Season Tee Off

Location: Maui, Hawaii - Kapalua Country Club. Par 73, 7 holes over 500 yards, wide fairways, large greens.

Field: 39 players - it had been for tournament winners only but now also includes Tour Championship qualifiers from the previous season who hadn’t won which makes up 10 of the field.

Purse: This is one of the PGA Tour’s new elevated events with the prize money jumping to $15m (from $8.2m last year).

Horses for courses: Spieth (68.25), Rahm, Morikawa, Thomas, Schauffele, Cantlay, Matsuyama, Finau and Horschel (70.35) top the stroke averages stats at Kapalua in the last 7 years.

Previous Winners: Harris English, Justin Thomas (twice), Xander Schauffele and Jordan Spieth are the only winners to be playing this week that have won this event in the last 10 years. Jon Rahm has been runner up twice in 2022 and 2018, Joaquin Niemann was runner up in 2021 and Schauffele joint second in 2020.

DraftKings Lineup

The lack of form at the beginning of the season pushes me towards horses that love this course: JT, Hideki and Horschel (plus Spieth in my Alternative Lineup).

Value wise Hideki and Spieth stand out when comparing with the betting markets and I've gone with three players who have bags of potential in Kim, Conors and Theegala. The alternative lineup has 100% cuts made stats and whilst it's only one thing to look at, missing the cut with even one player has a massive effect in the 4 round events (and why I actually prefer the single round events).

Justin Thomas $9,900

Tom Kim $8,700

Hideki Matsuyama $8,100

Billy Horschel $7,900

Corey Coners $7,800

Sahith Theegala $7,300

Remaining Salary $300

Alternative Lineup: Out - Kim, Coners and Theegala. In - Im, Spieth, Scott. Remaining Salary $0.

Justin Thomas $9,900

Sungjae Im $8,300

Jordan Spieth $8,200

Hideki Matsuyama $8,100

Billy Horschel $7,900

Adam Scott $7,600

Good luck!
