2020 The American Express Betting

The American Express Betting

The American Express, a tournament that many people still think of as the Bob Hope Classic, takes place in La Quinta, California in mid-January. Unlike many PGA Tour events, this tournament takes place over three courses, the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA West, The Stadium Course at PGA West and the La Quinta Country Club. The tournament finally got rid of the five-round format in 2012, so now it is the traditional 72-hole forma, but because it is a celebrity pro-am, the cut is at 54 holes instead of 36. Because the event is a pro-am, don’t be surprised if you see a number of celebrities playing along with the pros.

Catch all of the action at The American Express from Thursday, January 16 through Sunday, January 19.

This event has seen a lot of low scores through the years, but keep in mind that it was a five-round tournament for many of those years. The tournament switched to the traditional four-rounds in 2012 and the scores are more in line with what you normally see at other PGA Tour events.

Most Career Wins at The American Express

WINS GOLFER YEARS
5 Arnold Palmer 1960, 1962, 1968, 1971, 1973
2 Billy Casper 1965, 1969
2 John Cook 1992, 1997
2 Bill Haas 2010, 2015
2 John Mahaffey 1979, 1984

This tournament was dominated by Arnold Palmer in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, as he won it five times. No one has come close to matching Arnie’s success, but four other players have won the event twice, including Bill Haas who got his second win in 2015. Because not all of the top players in the world play in this event, it is unlikely Palmer’s record will ever be matched.

Best Winning Tournament Scores at The American Express

SCORE GOLFER YEAR

-26 (262) Adam Long 2019
-25 (263) Jason Dufner 2016
-25 (263) Brian Gay 2013

This tournament changed in 2012 to a traditional 72-hole event, so we’ll just list the record since 2012, which is Patrick Reed’s 28-under in 2014. If you go back to the 90-hole event, the record would be -36, set by Joe Durant in 2001.
