Description The Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai is a golf tournament on the PGA Tour Champions in Hawaii, on the Big Island. It is played annually in January at the Hualalai Resort Golf Club in Kaʻūpūlehu in the Kona district, and Mitsubishi Electric is the main sponsor. The field consists of the senior major champions of the last five years and other tournament winners of the last two years, plus a few sponsor invitees.
The tournament debuted 36 years ago in 1984 as the senior division within the PGA Tour's MONY Tournament of Champions at LaCosta Resort in Carlsbad, California. The purse was $100,000 and Orville Moody won by seven strokes to take the winner's share of $30,000. It continued as a division of that tournament through 1994, became a separate event in Puerto Rico in 1995, and relocated to Hualalai in 1997.
The event takes place Jan 21-23 and has a prize fund of $1,800,000.
Darren Clarke won the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai by two strokes for his second straight PGA TOUR Champions victory, playing the back nine in 6 under in a closing 8-under 64.
The 52-year-old former Open Championship winner from Northern Ireland started the back-nine run with birdies on Nos. 10-11, added two more on 13 and 14, made a 10-foot par save on 15 and birdied 16 and 17. He parred the 18th to cap the bogey-free round in the first event of the year.
