The American Express Betting Preview

16 January 2024

The PGA Tour shifts from Hawaii to California this week for the 65th annual The American Express. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler leads a field that also includes the 2024 debut of Justin Thomas. Defending champion Jon Rahm is not in the field due to his departure to LIV Golf.  Three courses will be used over the first three rounds — Pete Dye Stadium Course, Nicklaus Tournament Course and La Quinta Country Club — before the final round is played at the Stadium Course.

WINNER: TOM KIM

Only 21, Kim is already a three-time winner on the Tour and is coming off a season where he had nine Top 10 finishes and ranked 14th in birdie average. He finished tied for sixth in this event last year at -23 that included a second-round 62. Looking to rebound from a disappointing T45 at The Sentry in Hawaii, Kim's No. 1 rating in this week's Dunkel Index makes him worth a look at +2500 to win.
