The affable 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 significant role in Finau's achievements.

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 playing golf on Sundays.

The pair have five children together: Jraice, Leilene Aiaga, Tony, Sage and Sienna-Vee. Finau, who once missed a chance to play golf with Tiger Woods because Alayna was due to give birth to their fourth child, is very family orientated, and he regularly posts pictures of himself with his wife and children on his Instagram.

In past interviews, Finau has also stated that he would like to have an even bigger family, one of the reasons being that it's fairly common amongst Polynesians to have large families. Tony, himself, 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, who also try to watch their father as much as they can.

One of the events that they did manage to attend was the 2018 Masters, where Finau famously dislocated his ankle celebrating a hole in one during the par-3 tournament. He would go on to finish tied-10th in the main event.

Finau 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.”
