2011 PGA Tour:Farmers Insurance OpenJanuary 26, 2011 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the PGA Tour moves to Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA for the Farmers Insurance Open. This tournament will be Tiger Woods' first official event for 2011.

Last season, Tiger Woods was still recovering from his much publicized personal problem. He failed to win a single tournament but showed flashes of his old form in some instances. With his full disclosure of his personal problem inside the vault, he is poised to resurrect his career in Torrey Pines Golf Course.

Torrey Pines was a special place for Tiger Woods in his golf career. He has won 7 times at Torrey Pines and he's on a mission to start this season on a high note.

Tiger Woods was dislodged to World No. 3 in the latest PGA ranking by Europe's promising youngster Martin Kaymer. Woods may just shrug his shoulder about this news, expect him to use it as a motivation for this season and hopefully regain his No.1 ranking before season ends.

The sportsbook handicappers have picked Tiger Woods as the favorite to win the Farmers Insurance Open. Sixteen months without a PGA Tour win definitely makes Tiger Woods hungrier to snatch his winless record.
