Sony Open in Hawaii
The Sony Open in Hawaii is part of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Series, which is played in early January at the par 70, 7,044 yard Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. The tournament has been a regular on the tour since 1965, while scores can very much be dependent on the winds, which have been known to cause havoc. Five players have won the Sony Open twice, with the latest being American Jimmy Walker who triumphed in back-to-back tournaments in 2014 and 2015. Fellow countryman Russell Henley holds the tournament record after he stormed to a stunning 24-under-par, 256, victory in 2013.
Other memorable moments include Isao Aoki becoming Japan's first winner on the PGA Tour back in 1983 after he holed out a wedge shot for a stunning eagle-3 on the final hole. Meanwhile the event gained widespread publicity for handing female golfing sensation Michelle Wie four consecutive sponsor invitations from 2004 to 2007 - the first of which was when Wie was only 14-years-old.
