Formerly the Bob Hope Classic, the Humana Challenge was renamed for the tournament’s new title sponsor – Humana and the William J. Clinton Foundation in 2014. The PGA Tour event will focus on health and wellness, as well as raising funds for charity. CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation is the new name.
The Bob Hope Classic held at Palm Springs every January. The Bob Hope Classic is one of the PGA's most valued professional golf tournaments, and this California-hosted event is a fan favorite that draws in golf bettors from around the country.
The Bob Hope Classic is a PGA competition that pits the best golfers on the tour against each other. In 2011, Major changes in sponsorship will happen at the Bob Hope Classic.
The Bob Hope Classic announced Franklin American Mortgage Company is this year's platinum sponsor. They filled in after troubled automaker Chrysler dropped out as a title sponsor in 2009. Chrysler has been a title sponsor since the early 1980s and a sponsor since the 1960s.
The Bob Hope Classic is one of the rare five-round events on tour, and it is a celebrity pro-am. Celebs and amateurs play the first four rounds, pros only in the final round. Bob Hope's name was added to the tournament in 1965, and continues to be part of the tournament name even after Hope's death in 2003. Arnold Palmer serves as tournament host. Chrysler was the sponsor for many years, but withdrew prior to the 2009 event.
The Hope is played on four courses, with pros and their celeb/amateur partners rotating between the four over the first four days, then the pros only finishing on the designated host course for the final round. Currently, the four courses are:
* PGA West (Palmer Private course), La Quinta, Calif.
* PGA West (Nicklaus Private course), La Quinta, Calif.
* La Quinta Country Club, La Quinta, Calif.
* Silver Rock Resort, Palm Springs, Calif.
