PGA Odds, Picks And Props For 2024 The American Express

Following two events in Hawaii including last week’s Sony Open, the PGA Tour West Coast swing heads to La Quinta, CA for 2024 The American Express. The defending champion, Jon Rahm, is not in the field, as he’s taken his game to LIV Golf. Perhaps we’ll see him in Las Vegas next month when the LIV Golf League plays an event at Las Vegas Country Club along the Las Vegas Strip Feb. 8-10 ahead of Super Bowl LVIII Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Two huge longshots of 200/1 and 500/1 won the first two PGA Tour events in Hawaii, and both winners Chris Kirk and Grayson Murray are in teh field for the 2024 The American Express tournament.
