The CareerBuilder Challenge is the third PGA Tournament in the calendar year of 2017 but it is not the third tournament of the 2017 PGA season which began last October. Arnold Palmer (1960, 1962, 1968, 1971, 1973) holds the record for most wins with five. Phil Mickelson (2002, 2004) is one of six players tied for 2nd most wins with two each. 

Patrick Reed won this event in 2014. Both Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson are playing in the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge and they are the two top ranked PGA golfers in the playing field this week.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge is $5.8 million. That's the same amount of prize money that was up for grabs here last year.
