The Official Kickback PGA American Express 2024 Blog

Gonna cut right to the chase, this event sucks. Pro-Am, three courses, the cut coming after 54 holes.

Pro-Am szn with the different courses in the roto and no shot link... not a fan. However, there could be some drama again on Sunday like last week, makes for some good TV.

AMEX in the Coachella Valley,  home of the Dye Stadium Course (7,187 yards), Nicklaus Tournament Course (7,147 yards), and La Quinta Country Club (7,060 yards) for the 2024 roto. Each course in play being a par 72.

Pretty loaded field this week including guys like Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Tom Kim, Sam Burns, and the betting favorite, Scottie Scheffler, coming in at plus +550 to win. Smellin like it's gonna be a complete birdie fest like it is every year. Jon Rahm 2 years ago called it a “piece of shit set up putting contest.” This tournament was formerly known as the Desert Classic, shoulda kept that name. Some absolute bombs winning this in years past, Hudson Swafford 250/1, Shakin that ass 60/1, Andrew Landry 250/1, Adam Long 500/1.


Here’s what we’ve got for action this week:

Patrick Cantlay To Win +1000: Dust golfer, dust tournament. Seems like he’d get a win here

JT Poston To Win +3000: Guys been hot lately and is great in these birdie fests the way he rolls the rock.

Eric Cole To Win +3500: This guys getting a win very soon and I’m not missing out. 

Tom Kim over Justin Thomas (-110)

Rickie Fowler over Beau Hossler (-110)

Also gonna take the first round leader goat himself Aaron Rai +5500
