PGA TOUR Champions Opens 2024 Season at Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai
KA’UPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii – For the 28th consecutive year, PGA TOUR Champions will begin its season at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai, with tournament rounds scheduled for January 18-20.
“One of the great traditions on PGA TOUR Champions is starting each year on the Island of Hawaii at this one-of-a-kind setting,” said PGA TOUR Champions President Miller Brady. “We are proud to continue our partnership with Mitsubishi Electric as we kick off the 2024 season and look forward to returning to the Four Seasons Hualalai to begin what promises to be a tremendous year on PGA TOUR Champions.”
Forty-two legends of the game will tee it up at Hualalai Golf Course in Ka'upulehu-Kona on the Island of Hawaii, including six past champions. Last year, Steve Stricker captured the first of his six wins, beginning a record-breaking season that culminated in winning Charles Schwab Cup. During the 2023 Mitsubishi Electric Championship, he recorded the low 18-hole score (60) and low 54-hole score (193) of the season by any player on PGA TOUR Champions.
Three-time winners of the Mitsubishi Electric Championship Bernhard Langer (2009, 2014, 2017) and Miguel Ángel Jiménez (2015, 2020, 2022) will join Stricker in Hawaii. Langer, the 66-year-old World Golf Hall of Fame member, set the PGA TOUR Champions all-time wins record in 2023 by capturing his 46th overall victory on the Tour. Other past champions in the 2024 field are Jerry Kelly (2018), Tom Lehman (2019) and Darren Clarke (2021).
