2019 Tournament of Champions: First round tee times, pairings for Thursday

January 3, 2019

The first PGA Tour event of 2019 begins this week with the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua in Hawaii. While it’s technically not the first tournament of the 2018-19 wraparound season, it traditionally plays the role of season-opener. You can find full pairings and tee times for the first round below.

The field at the Tournament of Champions is unique in the schedule. It features 33 top Tour pros, all who won official events in the previous season.

While some fan favorites like Tiger Woods and Justin Rose chose to sit this tournament out, the field still features many of the game’s top players.

World No. 1 Brooks Koepka, who is coming off a two-major season, tees off at 12:20 p.m. local time, 5:20 p.m. ET on Thursday with Keegan Bradley.

Dustin Johnson begins his day in the last group at 5:40 p.m. ET. He’ll be joined by rising star Bryson DeChambeau, who won an incredible four times in 2018 and made plenty of other news with his views on the rule changes, particularly the flagstick rule.

Cameron Champ and Satoshi Kodaira will kick things off at 3:00 p.m. ET.
