January 10, 1999 - David Duval won the inaugural Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort in Maui. Duval shot a final round Five-under (68) to win the tournament by nine shots over Mark O’Meara and Billy Mayfair. “I hope I can do it for another 10-15 years,” said Duvalafter winning for the eighth time in 15 months. Of course Duval’s 2014 PGA Tour season was his last and he’s been a part of Golf Channel coverage and commentates on some of the major championships, such as The Open Championship.
