The winners from each of the six quarterfinal games will proceed to the semi-finals to compete against the other winners and seeded players. The nine semi-finalists will compete across three games, and then comes the final round, which will follow the 2019 Greatest of All Time tournament rules, meaning three finalists will play until someone wins three matches. The finals could last as long as a week, depending on how the games unfold.

The first tournament of the year on the PGA Tour will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday when the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions tees it up on the Plantation Course at Kapalua in Maui, Hawaii. With last year's winners and the top 30 from the FedEx Cup standings earning entry, the Sentry Tournament of Champions 2023 field was already guaranteed to be a strong one. But its new elevated status and a $15 million purse have drawn 17 of the top 20 players in the world despite the fact that the field only consists of 29 players.
Last year's runner-up Jon Rahm has won two of his last four worldwide starts and the No. 5 player in the Official World Golf Ranking is listed as the 8-1 favorite in the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Two-time tournament winner Justin Thomas is coming off a year where he won his second major championship and he's listed at 10-1 in this week's PGA Tour odds. Before locking in your 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up over $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
McClure's model included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned almost $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure's model was all over Scottie Scheffler's first career major championship victory heading into the weekend.
In addition, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner.
Now that the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions field is locked, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.
