Well we are into Golf 2016 and it begins with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii. There are a couple of standout aspects to this golf tournament. First of all you had to have won a tournament last year to qualify to play and it is played in the stunningly beautiful Hawaii.

Spieth-Hyundai

This year has a very impressive field including the #1 and #2 players in the world. Going into the final round the #1 player Jordan Spieth had a five stroke lead which is really just incredible. Chances were going into the final round that Jordan was going to win. The last time a world number one lost a tournament with a 54 hole lead of 5 shots or more was Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters.

Spieth played the final round with #16 in the world golfer Brooks Koepka who won the Waste Management Phoenix Open last year. We think that Brooks Koepka will be a real up and comer this year on the PGA Tour and a name you will be seeing on the first page of many leader boards.

The 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions was won by Patrick Reed and he wasn’t going down without a fight this year either. Partick Reed ended up shooting 4 under on the final round and finished a strong stand-alone 2nd place.

At the end of the day Jordan Spieth stole the show with a stellar 6 under in the fourth round, finishing the tournament 30 under par. Get used to seeing Jordan Spieth with a smile on his face and putting smiles on golf fans around the world.
