The PGA TOUR's first full-field event of the calendar year, the 2018 Sony Open in Hawaii attracted a field of the world’s finest golf pros competing for a share of the $6.2 million purse. Patton Kizzire parred the sixth playoff hole to capture the Sony Open's 20th anniversary tournament Sunday. Kizzire and James Hahn, who lipped out an 8-foot par putt on the final playoff hole, went back and forth in the longest playoff in tournament history at Waialae Country Club. Both finished regulation at 17-under 263 with our 2018 tournament champion Kizzire who took home a check for $1,116,000 in prize money.
The Sony Open in Hawaii is the signature fundraising event for Friends of Hawaii Charities. Since 1999, Friends of Hawaii Charities, Inc., with Sony Open charity partner, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc., have distributed $18,000,000 to over 350 Hawaii not-for-profit organizations.
