Long wait over as How­ell re­turns to Kapalua a er 11 years

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Sport -

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
