In the second round of The American Express 2023, S.H. Kim’s third shot at the par-5 16th hole hits the flagstick and caroms into the infamous greenside bunker, embedding under a rake. After taking relief, Kim takes four tries to escape the monster bunker before finishing with a triple bogey eight. On the par-3 17th hole, Kim’s tee shot bounces off the rocks on the edge of the island green, landing 24 feet from the flag. Kim then drains the ensuing putt for an uncanny, bounce back birdie.

After two weeks in Hawaii, the PGA TOUR heads back to the mainland this week for The American Express, which once again will be played across three golf courses: La Quinta CC, The Nicklaus Tournament Course and the Stadium Course at PGA West. Ten of the top 20 players in the world will be teeing it up in the Coachella Valley this week, including 2022 Player of the Year and current World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler, alongside 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions winner Jon Rahm, who won The American Express in 2018, finishing two shots clear of second-place Collin Morikawa. Xander Schauffele is expected to make a welcome return to action after withdrawing from the Sentry Tournament of Champions, playing just eight holes of his second round due to a back injury. Other notable names to look out for include 2021 tournament winner Si Woo Kim, who is playing after a superb victory at the Sony Open in Hawaii last week and World No. 5 Patrick Cantlay, who has finished inside the top 10 in his last two appearances at The American Express, including a runner-up finish in 2021.
