The field for the 2024 Sentry Tournament of Champions will be officially announced on Friday, December 29. Historically, the field for this event has been limited to only include winners from the previous PGA TOUR season, but qualification this year will also extend to the top 30 players who reached the TOUR Championship last season. Here are the odds for John Haslbauer’s projected favorites a month out from the event.

  • Scottie Scheffler +600
  • Viktor Hovland +800
  • Max Homa +1400
  • Ludvig Aberg +1400
  • Xander Schauffele +1600


The Plantation Course at Kapalua sits heavily exposed on the coastline of Maui, Hawaii, which has historically set up for some dramatic changes in weather conditions over four days of tournament play. Last year saw heavy rainfall leading into the event with uncharacteristically calm winds all four days. The absence of wind and soft receptive conditions led to the easiest scoring conditions in tournament history, with three players (Cam Smith, Jon Rahm, and Matt Jones) eclipsing 30-under par.

Conditions aside, The Plantation Course at Kapalua is one of the longest courses on the PGA TOUR, playing to a Par-73 with massive, undulating fairways. It’s a bomber’s paradise, but features tricky table-top greens that emphasize strong iron play and scrambling when winds pick up.

Traits and Notable Facts

There are several unique characteristics of The Plantation Course at Kapalua which stand out compared to TOUR average. Over the last two years, Kapalua ranks as the easiest course on TOUR in terms of scoring average, Par-4 Scoring Average, Par-5 Scoring Average, Driving Accuracy, Off-The-Tee Difficulty, Greens In Regulation Percentage, and Greenside Bunker Difficulty. In shorter terms, it’s a free-for-all off the tee with massive rolling fairways and large landing areas on the greens. Without wind, the course is relatively defenseless and serves as target practice for the best golfers in the world.

In terms of Course History, Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, and Xander Schauffele highlight the list of players who have repeatedly played well here, suggesting a strong comp to Augusta National, which shares the same characteristics of expansive fairways, severe undulations, and overall course length.

Looking down the list of winners over the last 10 years, this has proven to be an event with limited upside from longshots, as Harris English’s win in 2021 at 33-1 represent the longest Sentry Tournament of Champions odds of any winner over that span. Moreover, the favorites have been dominant in this event, with five winners of 14-1 odds or shorter. Therefore, this shapes up to be a good week for a short betting card or even a single bullet strategy.

HOW TO BET ON THE Sentry Tournament of Champions

Here is a look at how to bet on golf odds for the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua. The most basic wager is picking an overall winner. Every golfer will open the tournament with what is referred to as “plus money” with the favorites having shorter odds. Using the 2023 tournament as an example, Jon Rahm opened the event with +650 odds to win. This means if a bettor wagered $100 on Rahm to win the Sentry, a winning ticket paid $750 – $650 profit plus the initial $100 bet back.

Favorites in a golf tournament like this will typically have odds to win in the +650 to +1200 range. Longshots, on the other hand, are more likely to be +40000 or greater.

However, if bettors are struggling with picking an overall winner, sportsbooks typically offer a variety of player props, including Top 5 or Top 20 finish, and round finishing position.

Others might think the Plantation Course at Kapalua isn’t a favorable one for certain golfers. Those odds can be found under the “Miss the Cut” betting menu.

You can also bet on Players to Make or Miss the Cut at The PLAYERS Championship. For instance, a top golfer like Hideki Matsuyama had -250 odds to Make the Cut at a recent tournament and had +175 odds to Miss the Cut.
