Not playing are qualified players Rory McIlroy, Tyrrell Hatton and Jim Herman. McIlroy and Hatton chose not to play while Herman was forced to withdraw last week after testing positive for COVID-19.

Herman tweeted Thursday that he had contracted the novel coronavirus.

“Some lousy news to end the year - I’ve had CV19 for the last couple of days and therefore will not be playing Kapalua @Sentry_TOC,” Herman wrote.

Herman, who has made two starts in the year-opening event with a best finish of T-12 in 2017, added that he was unsure whether he was going to play Sony Open the following week.

This week's event not only includes winners from the previous season but also any player who qualified for last season's Tour Championship.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
