I’ll ride with Cameron Champ, mostly for selfish FredEx Cup reasons.
Holes 6, 7, 11, 12, 17, 18 are really cool and have awesome views. Well 95% of the course has awesome views but those holes are really good. The drives and approaches on 17 and 18 are my favorites to watch for the elevation but honestly, most of the course is full of fun shots.
And I agree with the OP that this might be the best PGA tournament of the year. I stand firm in my believe that if you hate Kapalua in any respect, you hate golf and should be banned from playing it. My proof…
Limited field. Damn right, winners only here baby. Also rounds aren’t slow as shit. Guys are just having fun and it usually shows.
Great course in a picturesque setting. A Coore/Crenshaw on the side of a mountain in Hawaii. When a majority of golf fans are cold and/or under snow, this is a welcome sight.
New calendar = new season. The first event of the actual season (spare me your fall season BS), the excitement is palpable.
Primetime TV coverage is the best. Don’t @ me non-Americans.
