The American Express Preview:

Despite not having defending champion Jon Rahm in the field this week, The American Express is stacked with some of the PGA Tour’s top talent.

This event often has had a hard time landing some of the top names on Tour, but not this year. Twenty-one Top 50 golfers in the Official World Golf Rankings are playing this week, including four inside the Top 10.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler returns to action after he missed the Sony Open in Hawaii. Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, and Wyndham Clark round out the players inside the Top 10.

Justin Thomas is making his season debut as he looks to get off to a quick start in 2024. After an up-and-down 2023 season, the former Alabama Crimson Tide player is eying a bounce back.

Daniel Berger makes his PGA Tour return since the 2022 U.S. Open. He has been battling an injury that kept him out of the entire 2023 season. The last time he competed, he ranked No. 25 in the world but has since dropped to No. 644.

Grayson Murray will also be in the field this week, coming off his victory at the Sony Open. Can he keep his hot streak going? To make this week a little more interesting, PGA Professional of the Year, Michael Block will tee it up as well.

There will be plenty of young names in the field, as 26 PGA Tour rookies are set to play.

Davis Thompson is another name to watch out for this week. He finished runner-up to Rahm last year, his best finish on Tour. Akshay Bhatia, Eric Cole, Camilo Villegas, J.T Poston, and The Sentry winner, Chris Kirk, are among the 15 players who have competed in each of the first three 2024 events.

Rahm won this event last year at 27-under, so expect a lot of birdies this week. Players tend to go low at the American Express, so it’ll be a marathon of who can avoid mistakes and keep pace.
