Tyrrell Hatton is expected to join the field at the 2024 Sony Open in Hawaii, according to a press release issued by the title sponsor, Sony Group Corporation. While the list of players is “subject to change,” the release includes several notable names, including defending champion Sii Woo Kim, Matt Fitzpatrick, Lucas Glover, Hideki Matsuyama, and Justin Rose. The event will have a purse of $8.6 million, with the winners’ share set at $1,494,099, and all proceeds will benefit Hawaii’s communities through the Friends of Hawaii Charities.
