Tournament: Farmers Insurance Open
Date: Jan. 23-26, 2014
Venue: Torrey Pines Golf Course
Location: La Jolla, California, U.S.
2013 Winner: Tiger Woods

One of the strongest fields of the year comes together for the Farmers Insurance Open, a tournament dominated by Tiger Woods. He was the winner last season at this tournament by four strokes even after shooting par on Sunday, eventually finishing 14-under par. The tournament takes place over two Torrey Pines golf courses, South and North course, splitting between the two over the first 36 holes then finishing the last two days on the South course.

Golfers to Watch

Tiger Woods (5/2): Woods has absolutely owned this tournament and has won seven different times, but only once over the past five years. He also won the 2008 U.S. Open when it was played at the South course in Torrey Pines. A victory here would be Woods’ 80th in his career, so his dominance of this course and desire to reach a new milestone could put him over the top in his second tournament of the season.

Jimmy Walker (30/1):
Walker is the current money leader ($2.4M) and points leader (1,233) this season with two wins and two other top-12 finishes in six 2013-14 tournaments. He currently ranks third in driving distance this season (308.8), which should help him on one of the longer courses on the tour. Walker has placed in the top-8 in this tournament in each of the past two years, including a fourth place finish last year.

Brandt Snedeker (20/1): Snedeker was one of two runner-ups last season in this tourney and was the victor in 2012 after a two-hole playoff. He also placed T9 in 2011 and T2 in 2010. His play as of late has not been great though, with three cuts made but underwhelming performances (55th and 58th last week) in two of those three starts. Look for Snedeker to turn it around at Torrey Pines this weekend.

Phil Mickelson (12/1): Mickelson has a new driver and is coming off his first tournament start of 2014, a second-place finish in Abu Dhabi. He has had past success at Torrey Pines, with three victories when this was the Buick Open, and has four top-10 finishes since his last win back in 2001. This includes a runner-up in 2011, but missed the cut in 2012 and finished T51 last year, making him a risky wager for this week.

Scott Brown: Brown is one of three players in 2014 to make seven cuts so far and has two top-four finishes. The 30-year-old American uses his driving accuracy (71.3%), which is currently 15th on the tour, to keep him in the running in each tournament, and could be a surprise contender this week.
