Bradley is set to make his fourth appearance at the Sentry Tournament of Champions after earning his fifth career PGA TOUR victory at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP in October. The Vermont native came from behind to beat Rickie Fowler and Andrew Putnam by one stroke at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club in Japan, marking his first title since the 2018 BMW Championship.

Two TOUR victories in 2022 secured Cantlay’s return trip to the Valley Isle and the Sentry Tournament of Champions. The California native earned his first title in 2022 alongside teammate Xander Schauffele at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as they became the first team to win in wire-to-wire fashion. In August, the 30-year-old became the first player to successfully defend a FedExCup Playoffs event, winning the BMW Championship which marked his eighth career TOUR win. Throughout the 2022 calendar year, he earned 11 top-10 finishes including four runners-up (2/WM Phoenix Open; 2/RBC Heritage; T2/Rocket Mortgage Classic; T2/Shriners Children’s Open). Cantlay holds two top-five finishes in four appearances at The Plantation Course at Kapalua (T15/2018; 4/2020; T13/2021; 4/2022).
Matsuyama earned his sixth trip to the Sentry Tournament of Champions following his victory at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January. The win marked the Japan native’s eighth career TOUR title, tying K.J. Choi for the most wins by a player from Asia. Additionally, the 30-year-old secured eight top-25 finishes during the calendar year including a T3 at AT&T Byron Nelson and fourth place finish at the U.S. Open. Matsuyama’s runner-up finish at the 2017 Sentry Tournament of Champions marks his best finish at the event in five appearances on Maui (T3/2015; T4/2018; T41/2021; T14/2022).
Rahm claimed his seventh career TOUR title at the inaugural Mexico Open at Vidanta when he defeated Brandon Wu, Tony Finau and Kurt Kitayama by two strokes in his 123rd career start. Over the course of 2022, the Spaniard earned eight top-10 finishes, including a runner-up at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and a T3 the Farmers Insurance Open. Rahm will make his sixth start on Maui where he has five top-10 finishes in as many appearances at The Planation Course at Kapalua (2/2018; T8/2019; 10/2020; T7/2021; 2/2022).
