The Hawaii Tourism Authority has signed an agreement with the PGA Tour that extends their official marketing partnership through 2010. The new contract takes effect January 1, 2007 and includes an extension clause covering the years from 2011 through 2014. Under the new contract, the season-opening tourneys for both the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour will continue to be played in Hawaii. The current total Hawaii line up is six men's events—the Mercedes Championship, the Sony Open in Hawaii, the MasterCard Championship, the Turtle Bay Championship, the Wendy's Champions Skins Game and the PGA Grand Slam. The contract also includes support for two professional women's events.
