Sabbatini in the house — again
Rory Sabbatini played in the first Sony Open and he hasn’t seen a reason to stop.
“I’ve played every year since 1999,” Sabbatini
said proudly after shooting a 1-under-par 69 Friday for a two-day total of 8-under 132. “That’s 19 in a row.”
Of the tournaments he has played, this is the only one he hasn’t missed.
“Even when I was injured I came and played,” he said.
He had to qualify for the 1999 appearance in his rookie year on the PGA Tour and has made a point of returning.
“I love the golf course here, the location, everything,” Sabbatini said. “It is one of the best if not the best course we play on. And it is always fun to get out of the holiday rut and come over here.”
The rewards haven’t been bad either — he’s earned $1.5 million at Waialae for his efforts.
