Twelve Ryder Cup participants previously qualified for champions-only event on Maui
Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii – Both Sam Burns and Max Homa recently notched their second wins of the calendar year, while 10 of the 12 members from the winning U.S. Ryder Cup Team and two European Team members captured victories in 2021 and have qualified to play the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions. The exclusive field is shaping up as the winners-only event is set to return to The Plantation Course at Kapalua from January 5-9.
Sanderson Farms Championship
At the Sanderson Farms Championship, Sam Burns collected his second PGA TOUR career victory with a one-stroke win over Nick Watney and Cameron Young to finish 22-under 266. The Louisiana native’s come-from-behind victory was the first in his TOUR career and came in his fifth start at the event, which is the site of his professional debut. The 25-year-old previously qualified for his first trip to the Sentry Tournament of Champions courtesy of his victory at the Valspar Championship in May.
Homa claimed his second title of the calendar year and third career win on the PGA TOUR at the Fortinet Championship in his 128th career start. The victory marked the 30-year-old’s second win in his home state of California and the first time winning in back-to-back seasons on TOUR. Homa entered the final round trailing by two strokes, and eagled the par-4 12th hole, becoming the first player since Branden Grace at the 2021 Puerto Rico Open to eagle a par-4 in the final round en route to victory. The California native previously qualified for his second trip to Maui and the Sentry Tournament of Champions by virtue of his win at The Genesis Invitational in February.
With the U.S. Team earning the victory at the Ryder Cup 2021, 10 of the 12 members: Daniel Berger. Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau, Harris English, Tony Finau, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, and Vice-Captain Phil Mickelson earned their way to Kapalua by virtue of their previous wins this calendar season.
