A field of 156 players will tee it up this week at PGA West for the 2022 edition of The American Express.

It’s the first stop of the five-event West Coast swing, and the first of the year on the U.S. mainland. (The first two tournaments – Sentry and Sony – teed it up in Hawaii.)

The field features defending champion Si Woo Kim, alongside headliners Jon Rahm and Patrick Cantlay.

As we do each week, here’s a look at the field in La Quinta, California… by the numbers.
