2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions Preview

Sentry Tournament of Champions LogoThe PGA Tour season has been in full swing since September but now after a bit of a break, we start off the 2021 Calendar year with the Sentry Tournament of Champions also known as the Sentry TOC. This field is made up of only past winners from the previous calendar year so there is a potential for 40 or so players, but when you take out multiple winners (Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa) and other players that aren’t ready to start the season yet, the field gets cut down a bit.

This field is a slam dunk for fantasy golf fans as it is a no cut event and most of the players are pretty good. Generally you don’t have to scour for sleeper picks for the Sentry TOC but you will still have to get some of the lower end golfers to fit a lineup under your FanDuel Salary Cap.

2021 Sentry TOC Tourney Preview

The field for for the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions is a strong one although some of the past year’s winners who won weak tournaments like a Michael Thompson or a Jim Herman will be outclassed by some of the top players on the PGA Tour. Expect some top winners not to accept the invite as they either don’t want to make a trip into the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the middle of their break time, or they play in other more lucrative stops on the European Tour or in the Middle East.

Since there were less tournaments last year because of Covid, there may be a few more golfers added to the field but generally it is usually one of the favorites in the field that is the winner of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
