What do I need to know? 

The course is a par-70, playing at 7,044 yards. 

It is flatter, narrower and is a completely different beast to that of Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course. 

The prize purse is $7.3m, with the winner picking up a pay day of $1.3million. 

Kevin Na is the defending champion. It was his fifth PGA Tour Victory.

Na is looking to become the first player since Jimmy Walker in '14, '15 to repeat the win. 

Justin Thomas has the 72-hole scoring record here (253 set in 2017).
