About the Tournament
PLAYER FIELD: 156 Amateurs and 156 PGA TOUR Professionals
The CareerBuilder Challenge is one of the only PGA TOUR events that features Pro-Am play along with tournament play for the first 54 holes. Each of the 156 PGA TOUR pros plays with a different amateur partner each day on different courses for three days. The three courses are: The Stadium Course at PGA WEST (host course), the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST, and the La Quinta Country Club. On Sunday, the low 70 professionals and ties play the final round of the 72-hole PGA TOUR tournament at The Stadium Course at PGA WEST. The top three low net and top three low gross amateurs also play on Sunday, to determine the overall CareerBuilder Challenge Amateur Champion.
