From Jan. 17 to the 21, the Careerbuilder Challenge, formally known as the Bob Hope Classic and the Humana Challenge, took place in La Quinta at the PGA West Stadium Course. The Careerbuilder Challenge is an annual golf tournament that takes place in the Coachella Valley since 1960.

This year’s winner was 23-year-old Jon Rahm. As the tournament was coming to an end, Rahm and 30-year-old runner-up Andrew Landry were in what was called a “dramatic back-and-forth playoff,” in which they kept tying with one another. A winner couldn’t be determined for a while, according to PGA Tour. Rahm took the win with a 12-foot birdie-putt, ending with a score of -22, making this his fourth worldwide victory this year.  

Attendees were given access to a huge tent from Vons Fan Pavilion where they could eat and drink to their heart’s content. Other than food, there were also performances by Huey Lewis and the News on Jan. 19 as well as the Goo Goo Dolls on Jan. 20.
