Last tournament: Viktor Hovland won the Mayakoba Classic.
Notes: The 42-man field is the largest for the Tournament of Champions. Because of the pandemic-shortened 2020 schedule, the field is for PGA Tour winners and anyone who qualified for the Tour Championship. … Sixteen players in the field did not win a tournament last year. … Abraham Ancer and Scottie Scheffler will be the first players who compete at Kapalua without having won on the PGA Tour. … Dustin Johnson makes his first start since winning the Masters in November. … Among those eligible, Rory McIlroy, Jim Herman and Tyrrell Hatton are the only ones who are not playing. Herman is recovering from COVID-19. … Justin Thomas has won the tournament two of the last four years. … Three players in the field are not yet eligible for the Masters — Andrew Landry, Nick Taylor and Richy Werenski. … Johnson’s lead at No. 1 in the world is the largest to start the year since McIlroy in 2015. No one since Tiger Woods in 2009 has stayed No. 1 from January through December. … The tournament is selling limited tickets (no more than 200 expected), but those fans will only be allowed at seating areas near the 18th green.
