The American Express TicketsThe PGA Tour makes an annual stop in California’s Coachella Valley for The American Express, a historic golf tournament previously known as The Desert Classic. One of the few PGA events that take place on more than one course, The American Express is a 72-hole tournament occurring in January at both PGA West and La Quinta Country Club in California. The American Express is a Pro-Am event, meaning that both amateurs and professionals will play together throughout the tournament. The first three rounds are played in a Pro-Am format, while the fourth and final day of competition includes just professionals and the six lowest-scoring amateurs. The American Express has a rich tradition, with hosts including Bob Hope and George Lopez, along with amateur celebrity appearances from Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Fallon and countless others. Buy your tickets to The American Express at StubHub today and enjoy a weekend in the beautiful Coachella Valley.

Previous editions of the Desert Classic hosted a variety of celebrities and powerful figures like Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bill Clinton.
What courses are utilized at The American Express?While most golf events take place over several rounds on the same course, The American Express actually uses three different courses in its tournament. It takes place at both La Quinta Country Club and PGA West, with the latter consisting of both the famed Stadium Course and the Nicklaus Tournament Course. All three courses are utilized throughout the first three days, but the final round of the tournament on Sunday only takes place at the Stadium Course. All three courses include viewing areas and are open to the public.
How much money is won at The American Express?The American Express currently features a $6.7 million purse, with the 2020 winner taking home a prize of $1.26 million. All 73 players that made the final cut in 2020 took home at least $13,000. Additionally, the tournament raises a considerable amount for charity. The 2019 edition saw over $900,000 donated, which was awarded to 29 different Coachella Valley organizations that focus on helping children, homelessness and more. The American Express has generated over $60 million for local charities over its history.
How does a Pro-Am tournament work?The American Express is a Pro-Am tournament, meaning that both PGA Tour professionals and amateur golfers tee off together. The Pro-Am twosome will play a better ball format and use their own handicaps. Most amateurs participating are done after the third round on Saturday, with just the very best scores advancing to the fourth round. The final round, played at PGA West Stadium Course, focuses on the 70 professional golfers that made the cut. The winner is then celebrated at the Bob Hope Memorial Trophy Presentation after the last hole.
