Be On The Lookout
This year’s Sentry Tournament of Champions looks a little different than in years past as the world continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Tournament sponsor Sentry Insurance has teamed up with schools on Maui and schools in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, the home of Sentry Insurance, to create a mask design contest with artwork reflecting the spirit and culture of the communities, each from the student’s point of view.
Lillian, a senior from Pacelli High School in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and Kyler, a fourth grader from King Kamehameha III Elementary on the island of Maui, have been chosen as the winners of a mask design contest held by the Sentry Insurance Foundation.
The winning designs will be featured on face masks and used by players, caddies and fans. Be on the lookout for the face masks all week.
Champions Tree Planting Ceremony
The ceremonial tree planting tradition was implemented during the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions to mark the beginning of the Champions Garden located within the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve on Maui.
The inaugural ceremony included past champions Dustin Johnson (2018), Xander Schauffele (2019) and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Sentry Insurance Pete McPartland planting ceremonial trees into planters containing soil from the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve. Sentry Tournament of Champions’ Hawaiian Cultural Advisor, Clifford Naeole, performed a Hawaiian blessing during the ceremony before the trees were taken to Pu’u Kukui and planted in the Champions Garden.
Come tournament week, 2020 champion Justin Thomas will make his contribution to the Champions Garden during a tree planting ceremony on No. 1 tee.
