The Sony Open in Hawaii is a professional men’s golf tournament on the PGA Tour. It is title sponsored by Sony Corporation, a Charity Partner of the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc, and host sponsor of Record Friends of Hawaii Charities, Inc.
The 2020 tournament marks the 22nd anniversary of Sony's title sponsorship of the event, which in 2018 they committed to a long-term extension; agreeing to continue the sponsorship and support to the Hawaiian Islands community through to the 2022 PGA TOUR season - the third-longest tenured title sponsor on TOUR.
As part of the tour's FedEx Cup series the Sony Open in Hawaii is the first full-field PGA Tour event of the calendar year. And, for the 55th straight year, Waialae Country Club has staged a PGA Tour event. There are only three more courses with a longer streak.
Attracting the world's strongest and greatest golfers in the hundreds to Waialae Country Club on the island of Oahu, the Sony Open is also the largest charity golf event in Hawaii having raised close to $20 million dollars for over 350 local not-for-profit organizations since 1999.
As one of the most popular PGA TOUR tournaments the event introduces the world’s best golf talent to the natural beautiful background of Hawaii.
The Sony Open in Hawaii has been contested at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii, since the event's modern-day inception of the Hawaiian Open in November 1965.
