2016 Sony Open in Hawaii Monday qualifiers

Luke List, Nick Killpack, Nick Mason and Byron Meth, the last U.S. Amateur Pub Links champion, all earned spots in the 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii through the Monday qualifier.

List was the medalist among the 77-player field, shooting 7-under 65 at Hoakalei County Club. Killpack was second, a shot behind List.

Then there was a five-for-two playoff, with a handful of players shooting 4 under par in the 18-hole event. Ultimately, Mason and Meth outlasted Kramer Hickok, Steve Allan and Kent Bulle for the spots.

List, who turns 31 this week, makes his fourth start on the PGA Tour of the 2016 season. It's also his second Sony Open start and first since 2013.

Killpack, a 32-year-old Utah native and BYU product, is making his first PGA Tour start. He also has conditional status on the Web.com Tour in 2016.

Mason is making his third Sony Open start and first since 2012. The University of Hawaii alum last competed on the PGA Tour at the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic, where he missed the cut.

Meth turned pro after competing in the Masters for winning the final U.S. Am Pub Links and is making his first PGA Tour start as a pro.
