2019 PGA Tour: Farmers Insurance Open January 24, 2019 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the PGA Tour moves to Torrey Pines Golf Club in San Diego, California for the Farmers Insurance Open. The 7,698 yard Par 72 South Course of the Torrey Pines Golf Club will be the site of the 4-day tournament. The South Course was originally designed by William F. Bell but was redesigned in 2001 by Rees Jones as it increased its course length.

Seven-time event champion Tiger Woods is making his first 2019 PGA Tour start of the season. He is well rested after his comeback tour last season in which he eventually punctuated with a PGA Tour Championship. Based on his last four Farmers start, he’ll do enough to make the cut due to his balky back. But with his last 13 starts from last season, Tiger Woods is expected to compete and challenge until Sunday for his first 2019 tour win.

The Farmers Insurance Open is fully loaded with the golf superstars. This tournament will have a feel and intense atmosphere of a major tournament. Defending FedEx Cup champion Justin Rose and current leader Xander Schauffele are among the few who will participate in the tournament. Rory McIlroy will be making his debut in the Farmers Insurance Open, he is another favorite to play in Sunday's final round.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed John Rahm as the favorite to win the Farmers Insurance Open.
