Long wait over as Howell returns to Kapalua a er 11 years
NO tournament is harder to qualify for than the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
No one knows that as well as Charles Howell III.
With the final shot of 2018 on the PGA Tour, he holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole to win the RSM Classic. That made him the final player to qualify for the winnersonly field at Kapalua.
For Howell, that meant his first return to Maui in 11 years.
“In one sense, it feels like a lifetime ago,” Howell said. “And in one sense, it feels like yesterday.”
“I’ve never enjoyed that tournament before. It was always bigger than life,” Howell said.
“I wanted to play so well that I probably over prepared for it. This time, with the kids being there for the Par 3, I’ll make it a point to enjoy the event.” – AP
