LA QUINTA, CALIF. – Recent U.S. Ryder Cup winners Tony Finau and Scottie Scheffler and 2021 tournament winner Si Woo Kim have committed to return to play in The American Express from Jan. 20-23, 2022 alongside tournament host and World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, who won his sixth major championship and 45th PGA TOUR title at the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.
