The PGA Tour heads to the West Coast this weekend for the 2023 American Express in California. Two former champions in Jon Rahm and Si Woo Kim return to the PGA WEST in hopes of winning the title again.
There will be a star-studded field in Palm Springs with players like No.2 player in the world Scottie Scheffler, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, and others in action this weekend.
The 2023 American Express will feature a new format with the field playing on three different courses this weekend: the Stadium Course, Nicklaus Tournament Course and La Quinta Country Club. While none are particularly long courses, players will need to adapt to a different green throughout the first 3 days.
Scroll down below for more information about the 2023 American Express tee times, field, odds and weather forecast.
American Express 2023 Field
The American Express draws out the most competitive field so far in 2023. There will be ten top 20 players competing this weekend including Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay.
After winning the Sentry Test of Champions, Rahm leads the field with the best odds to win. He previously won the American Express in 2018 but was caught slandering the tournament setup earlier this week.
The PGA Tour will have the field playing on three different courses through three days. Players will need to quickly adjust, as each course brings a different level of difficulty. Check out our course preview here.
