The American Express: Round 1 tee times, TV info, format

By

The PGA Tour returns to the Coachella Valley. This time, there’s a new sponsor and name of the event that started as the Bob Hope Desert Classic

The 61st rendition of the golf tournament is called The American Express.

It starts on Thursday and will be played at three courses – La Quinta Country Club, the Stadium Course at PGA West and the Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA West.

Defending champion Adam Long returns along with two-time American Express winner Phil Mickelson, the tournament’s host, and other top players like Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Tony Finau and Paul Casey.

How it works

Play in the 54-hole pro-am portion of the tournament begins at 11:30 a.m. each day on all three courses. Each foursome will include two pros and two amateurs, and each amateur will be assigned one of the pros for the day. The pro-am twosome will play a better-ball format with the amateur using his or her own full handicap.

Daily prizes on each course will be awarded in gross and net divisions. The pro-am division ends after Saturday’s play for most players, but the three low gross and three low net amateurs will play Sunday, when the low 70 pros and ties from the first three days of the pro event continue on the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West.

The winner will earn $1,206,000 and 500 FedExCup points.
