Tony Finau is one of the most consistent performers on the PGA Tour, finishing inside the top-30 of the FedEx Cup standings regularly since 2017. One reason for his success is his support team, with his wife, Alayna Galea’i-Finau, playing a huge part in Finau's achievements. Get to know her here.

Both Tony and Alayna are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In fact, it is up to Alayna to take the family to church whilst Tony is out on the golf course on Sundays.

The pair have five children together. They are called Jraice, Leilene Aiaga, Tony, Sage and Sienna-Vee. Tony and Alayna seem to be very family orientated, with Tony regularly posting pictures of himself and the family online, especially on his Instagram.

Additionally, Tony once missed a chance to play golf with Tiger Woods (opens in new tab) because Alayna was due to give birth to their fourth child.

In past interviews, Tony has also stated that he would like to have more kids, expressing that both he and his wife are hoping to raise a large family with at least five to six children.

Tony states that the reason for this, is because it is fairly common amongst Polynesians to have big families. Tony, for example, has five brothers and three sisters, whilst Alayna has four siblings – three sisters and a brother.

Alayna, according to Tony, comes to half of his tournaments, but most of the time stays home to look after their children. It is believed that the children do attend around eight tournaments a year.

One of the events that they attended was the Masters, where Finau famously had a hole in one and dislocated his ankle during the par-3 tournament. He would go on to finish tied-10th in the main event.

Tony is the first player of Tongan and Samoan descent to play on the PGA Tour, an achievement he is very proud of: “It’s really an honour for me to represent my people at the level that I am. I think the Polynesian people and the gospel are in harmony. We’re very respectful people, and very humble people … and I try and let that shine through as much as possible.”
