The PGA tour makes its annual stop in Ron Burgundy country for the Farmers Insurance Open. Torrey Pines, San Diego is the location, where the players will tackle two courses, North and South.
This is certainly one of the tougher stops on the PGA schedule. The South course is the longest the players will face all year, so good quality driving is key. The in-form Jon Rahm heads our betting at 9/1, at the location where he gained his first PGA tour success in 2017, but we’re looking elsewhere for value:
It’s impossible to mention the words Torrey Pines without talking about the GOAT, so I’m proud of myself for making it this far! Tiger makes his 2019 debut at Torrey, fresh off a Tour Championship victory, and a fine 2nd place finish in “The Match”.
This is a course he’s won at eight times, including the 2008 US Open, where he took the crown after playing 91 holes over 5 days with no ligament in his knee, and a broken leg. He finished in a tie for 23rd last year here, while still just easing himself back into playing competitive golf.
The big hitter Champ has acquitted himself remarkably well since making the transition from the Web.com tour, winning once, and going close in others on courses that on paper shouldn’t suit him.
He’ll relish the length here and looks good at 28/1 to us.
