The PGA Tour has travelled across the border from California to Nevada for this week's Shriners' Hospitals for Children Open in the rugged, arid terrain on the outskirts of Las Vegas.
The 600-mile trip, south and east from Napa Valley, takes the players to TPC Summerlin, one of the lowest-scoring venues on Tour.
World No 1 On The Tee
Brooks Koepka is back in action, teeing-up for the first time since August's Tour Championship.
The four-time major winner is probably chomping at the bit having missed out on the PGA Tour Player of the Year Award, which went to Rory McIlroy. This particular prize is voted for by members of the PGA Tour.
On his most recent start in this event, Koepka finished runner-up in 2016.
The next two highest-ranked golfers taking part are Patrick Cantlay and Bryson DeChambeau, both winners over this week's course.
DeChambeau is the defending champion, while Cantlay won on his Summerlin debut in 2017.
Cantlay promptly finished runner-up 12 months later and is currently at a career-high No 7 in the World Ranking.
Webb Simpson is another former champion here and is also making his first start since East Lake in late August.
These autumn events tend to be a good time for a golfer to claim a maiden PGA Tour title.
Among those who fall into this category is Abraham Ancer, the world No 41.
The 28-year-old Mexican finished fourth at Summerlin 12 months ago and, on his first start of the new season last week, missed the cut by a solitary stroke.
Ancer has previously taken the chequered flag on the Web.com Tour, as well as at last year's Australian Open.

Local pro Scott Piercy has had four top-10s at the course, as has Charles Howell who tied-fourth in California on Sunday following a strong putting display.
Chesson Hadley usually plays well at Summerlin, while five-time Tour winner Nick Watney is a former runner-up at the course.
Born in California, Watney tied-10th at Silverado on Sunday but is without a title for over seven years.
In Search Of A Hot Putter
Laid out approximately 2,700 feet above sea level, TPC Summerlin opened for business in 1991, and is located around seven miles west of downtown Las Vegas.
Situated in the shadows of Red Rock Canyon, the course has larger-than-average Bentgrass greens and generously wide Bermuda grass fairways.
Co-designed by Fuzzy Zoeller and Bobby Weed, Summerlin was initially one of three layouts used to host this event, before later becoming one of two, and since 2008 has been the exclusive venue for this popular tournament.
Sand is more of an issue than greenside water which only comes into play on four holes - including each of the last three.
With Driving Accuracy less of a concern than at many PGA Tour venues, the key to contending here is to get to grips with Summerlin's faster-than-average greens.
The tournament is usually a birdie-fest, so those in possession of a red hot putter will fancy their chances of being in contention on Sunday afternoon.
