The event - formerly known as the Bob Hope Classic - saw the left-hander victorious in 2002 and 2004 over the two courses at the famous Country Club.
"We're excited about it," Humana Challenge executive director Bob Marra said during a news conference at La Quinta. "He's a two-time winner here ... and he's Phil Mickelson.
"The legacy Phil has left on our event is undeniable, his popularity among our fans is remarkable. We could not be more pleased to have him start his season with us again."
FedEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker has already confirmed he would play in the event, which will see Mark Wilson defend his title.
