Description The American Express (formerly the Desert Classic, CareerBuilder Challenge, Palm Springs Golf Classic, the Bob Hope Desert Classic, the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and the Humana Challenge) is a professional golf tournament in southern California on the PGA Tour. Played in mid-winter in the Coachella Valley (greater Palm Springs), it is part of the tour's early season "West Coast Swing." Known for its celebrity pro-am, it previously had five rounds of competition (90 holes) rather than the standard of four rounds.
For many years, the event was named for and hosted by entertainer Bob Hope and featured a number of celebrity participants.
Overnight joint leader Andrew Landry dropped three shots on the back nine but finished with two birdies to take The American Express title in California.
Landry was in the box seat at La Quinta, reaching six under for the round after the 12th. But three straight bogeys opened the door to the chasing pack until the American slammed it shut by picking up shots on the par-three 17th and par-four 18th, a 67 bringing him to 26 under for the tournament and his second PGA Tour win.
