Bob Hope Classic golf tourney changes names

LA QUINTA, Calif.

The event, held annually in La Quinta, continued to be known as the Bob Hope Classic even after he died in 2003.

But when it's played next January, it will be called the Humana Challenge, named for the health insurance company sponsoring the competition.

Hope's name won't disappear altogether. The trophy given to the winner will be named for the late comedian.
