What To Look For: Farmers Insurance Open

The Tour comes back to San Diego for the 66th Farmers Insurance Open.

Torrey Pines was created in 1952 and the architect was William F. Bell. The Tour will play 1 round at the North Course and 3 rounds (if the player makes the cut) at the South Course.  The North Course is significantly easier than the South Course which plays to 7,698 yards.

The South course was later renovated under the guidance of Rees Jones.  Rees Jones loves enormous courses.  If Augusta is say...Wrigley Field...Torrey Pines is Comerica Park.

This is a polarizing course on Tour.  The sightlines are beautiful and many players absolutely swear by the course and the others swear at the course.  Driving is difficult because the field average will be only at about 50%.  The length of the course makes for difficult approaches and the greens are slow and very undulated

Projected Winning Score: -19


Jon Rahm +700
Rickie Fowler +1,000
Hideki Matsuyama
Jason Day +1,800
Gary Woodland +4,000


Bud Cauley +5,500
Patrick Reed +5,500
JJ Spaun +9,000
Trey Mullinax +25,000
Sang Moon Bae +30,000
