2024 Sentry betting favorites

Scottie Scheffler is the current favorite to win The Sentry. He’s also the top-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, most recently winning the Hero World Championship. Second on the list is Viktor Hovland, the winner of last season’s Tour Championship. 

Behind the two leaders, five golfers are jockeying for third place at most top online sportsbooks: Collin Morikawa, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Ludvig Aberg, and Xander Schauffele. Of that group, Cantlay is the highest-ranked player in the OWGR in fifth place. 

Prize pool for the 2024 Sentry 

The purse size for the 2024 Sentry is $20 million, with $3.6 million and 700 FedEx Cup points going to the winner. The prize pool for the event has jumped significantly — last season’s winner, Jon Rahm, received $2.7 million of the $15 million purse. Rahm is not in the field for this week’s event.

This is a no-cut event, which means that the 59 contestants will be in action for all four days and receive a share of the purse. Second place is good for $2.16 million, with the share descending from there, all the way down to $50,000 for 59th place.    

The Sentry TV and live stream schedule

Broadcast coverage of The Sentry will be available on Peacock and the Golf Channel. The event will also be available to stream through PGA Tour Live on ESPN+. Below is the full schedule for the main broadcast windows: 

The Sentry course and weather

The Sentry will take place on the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort in Hawaii. The course is a par 73 that stretches 7,596 yards. At last season’s edition, the cumulative score for Jon Rahm was 265 for a -27. 

The extended forecast is calling for temperatures in the low 80s and moderate winds. There is a chance of precipitation all four days, with the potential for afternoon showers the highest for the first three days of the event.
