Four of the world’s best golfers from four different countries will compete in the ISPS HANDA All Abilities Champions Playoffs, which will be played on January 6-7 in the Sentry Tournament of Champions round one and two at Kapalua’s Bay Course and The Plantation Course.

The ISPS HANDA All Abilities Champions Playoff is a collaborative effort between the ISPS HANDA, which promotes sporting events with a focus on blind and disabled athletes, and the Sentry Tournament of Champions to create a platform for the most high level of play in a world class venue. .

“We are looking forward to a very successful event and we are very grateful and appreciate the collaboration of the Sentry Tournament of Champions and the PGA TOUR to be so positive and welcoming towards this new event,” said Dr Haruhisa Handa, Founder and President of ISPS HANDA. “We fully believe in the ‘power of sport’ to bring people together, create opportunities for all and ultimately improve people’s lives.”

The ISPS HANDA All Ability Champions Playoff mirrors the Sentry Tournament of Champions as it brings together the winners of four of the world’s biggest all-ability events.

The ISPS HANDA All Abilities Champions Playoffs will feature a practice round on Wednesday, followed by two 18-hole per-game events on Thursday, January 6 at the Bay Course. On Thursday, the four competitors will play in a quartet with two simultaneous matches. The tournament concludes on Friday January 7 with the quartet playing the first nine holes of an 18-hole stroke play match at Bay Course and finishing with the last nine holes of the event at the Plantation Course. The four competitors will set off as a duo off the # 1 tee of The Plantation course at 1 p.m. and finish on the # 9 green with a post-match trophy ceremony.
