2022 Farmers Insurance Open Betting & DFS Preview

The PGA Tour's west coast swing continues this week on Wednesday with the Farmers Insurance Open featuring the scenic Torrey Pines South Golf Course in La Jolla, California. Torrey Pines has hosted this event every year since 1968.

Lying on land that was occupied by an anti-aircraft battery during World War II, there will be two courses utilized this week. Golfers will play both the North and South courses one time before the cut on Friday. Only the South course will be used on the weekend. While the North course plays much easier and is more tree-lined away from the coast, the South course sits partially on the coastal cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean bringing possible weather effects into play. It is a massively lengthy track. In fact, it is the longest annual Tour course in the rotation, stretching over 7,700 yards. Compared to the U.S. Open (won by Jon Rahm) here last summer, it will play even longer due to softer fairways and the cooler January air.

Other than the one round on the North Course, the scoring this week will be the complete opposite of the birdie-fests we have seen for the first three events of this year. The South Course is the seventh-most difficult course on Tour. Winning scores at this event have been in the single digits in four of the past eight years.

This is definitely a "sticky" course when looking at the type of players who have success here. Longer hitters have a definite advantage, yet the winners' list has also been filled with elite scramblers and poa putting specialists.

It's the first tough test of the new calendar year and numerous big names have shown up to take on the challenge. Along with Jon Rahm, and returning champion, Patrick Reed, other notables in the field include Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama, Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele.
