Justin Thomas defeated Patrick Reed with a birdie on the third playoff hole to win the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions for the second time at The Plantation Course in Kapalua, Maui.

Thomas picks up his 12th PGA TOUR win, joining Tiger Woods (34) and Jack Nicklaus (20) as the only players to accumulate 12 or more wins before the age of 27 (in the last 60 years).  Thomas has the most PGA TOUR wins by any player currently under 30 years of age.  He joins Stuart Appleby (3), Geoff Ogilvy (2) and Dustin Johnson (2) as multiple winners of the Sentry Tournament of Champions since the event moved to The Plantation Course at Kapalua in 1999.

Seven-time PGA TOUR winner Patrick Reed collects his sixth runner-up finish (second at Kapalua).

The playoff consisted of three past champions of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.  Defending champion, Xander Schauffele was eliminated on the first extra hole as he was unable to match Thomas and Reed’s birdies, and finished in third.  Schauffele becomes the first player since Tiger Woods (2000) to finish runner-up twice in a season as the defending champion.

Rounding out the top six were Patrick Cantalay, Rickie Fowler and Joaquin Niemann.
