Three Gators Set for The American Express in La Quinta
Wednesday, January 17, 2024

    The PGA Tour moves to La Quinta, California on Thursday for the second full-field event of the new season - The $8.4 million American Express - to be played over three courses: the Pete Dye Stadium Course, La Quinta Country Club and Nicklaus Tournament Course.

    There is no defending champ - last year's winner, Jon Rahm, has moved on to the controversial LIV adventure. 

    There are three Gators ready for action, Camilo Villegas, Tyson Alexander and Billy Horschel, and one Seminole, Daniel Berger, who hasn't been seen for a while. In last week's Sony Open in Hawaii, Camilo missed the cut after rounds of 72-70, 2 over par, and Tyson made the cut with 70-66, added a 72 on Saturday, then withdrew on Sunday. Horschel shot 68-68-68-65, 11 under par, tied for 18th, and earned a check for $106,102. 

    Three players tied for first in Hawaii at 17 under par, and Grayson Murray won it with a nearly 40-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole, No. 18. Byeong Hun An and Keegan Bradley both parred the extra hole.
