Hyundai Tournament of Champions 2016
Hyundai Tournament of Champions
From the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii
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.
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.
