The PGA Tour continues its California swing as it heads to Torrey Pines Golf Course for the third time in a year after hosting this tournament and the U.S. Open last year. Farmers Insurance Open odds have the world’s #1 player as the golf betting favorite at a place he loves.

Torrey Pines in San Diego has hosted the event since 1968, and all players will play the North and South Courses over the first two days before switching to the South Course for the final two days. The South Course is a par-72 that tips out at 7,765 yards, which is the longest course the PGA Tour will head to this year. The North Course is a little easier, coming in at 7,258 yards for a par-72. The North Course is where players have to make their birdies, because they don’t come easy on the South Course, which was about three shots higher over the first two rounds of last year’s tournament, which Patrick Reed won by five strokes.

Also, this tournament is now a Wednesday-to-Saturday event, instead of a Thursday-to-Sunday tournament. You can watch all four days on The Golf Channel, starting on Wednesday at 12:30 to 4:30 PM ET. Then it’s on Thursday from 3-7 PM ET, Friday from 3-5 PM ET and 2:30-4:30 PM ET on Saturday. CBS picks up the action from 5-8 PM ET on Friday and 4:30-8:30 PM ET on Saturday.

Farmers Insurance Open Odds – Favorites

Jon Rahm (+750)

Jon Rahm holds up the US Open trophy

Rahm is looking to bounce back after a T14 at the American Express golf tournament in which he was caught by a fan’s camera saying that the tournament was relegated to a “putting contest”. Rahm missed so many putts it was almost funny (well, not to him). But he returns to Torrey Pines, where he won his first major with the U.S. Open last year. Rahm also won this tournament in 2017 and has gone T29-T5-2-T7 before winning the U.S. Open.

Justin Thomas (+1400)

Thomas finished T19 at the U.S. Open, his first time playing at Torrey Pines since missing the cut in 2015. You would think that Torrey Pines would be the perfect place for his all-around game, but he shot 73 on the first day and played catch-up the rest of the time. This is Thomas’ first start since a T5 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Xander Schauffele (+1800)

Schauffele is a local, having been born and raised in San Diego, and he graduated from San Diego State. He went MC-MC-T25-MC at Torrey Pines ahead of 2021, and he might have been pressing too hard. But Schauffele was T2 in this event last year and then went T7 at the U.S. Open. Schauffele, the reigning Olympic golf gold medalist, finished 12th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Farmers Insurance Open Odds – Contenders

Bryson DeChambeau (+2000)

Bryson DeChambeau hit a bunker shot

DeChambeau finished T25 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and has been off since then. He finished T26 at the U.S. Open, and he missed the cut in his last non-major trip to Torrey Pines in 2018.

Dustin Johnson (+2000)

This is Johnson’s first start since a T45 at the CJ Cup in October, and he has fallen to fourth in the world golf rankings behind Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Patrick Cantlay. He finished T19 at the U.S. Open, and that was Johnson’s first trip to Torrey Pines since missing the cut there in 2017.

Hideki Matsuyama (+2000)

Matsuyama won the Sony Open for his second in in three starts; he won the Zozo Championship in October and then finished T13 to open the year at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He finished T3 in this event in 2019, then went T45-T53 at Torrey Pines before a T26 at the U.S. Open.

Farmers Insurance Open Odds – Longshots

Marc Leishman (+3000)

Leishman loves Torrey Pines, where he beat Rahm by a stroke in 2020 in this event. He also finished T18 in this event last year, but stumbled to a 64th-place finish in the U.S. Open. He finished T10-T36 on the Aloha Swing through Hawaii, and should be rested for California.

Brooks Koepka (+3300)

Brooks Koepka reads a putt

Koepka finished T28 at the Tournament Sentry of Champions, and the most important thing is that he seems to be healthy now. He missed the cut in this event last year, but true to form, Koepka was a threat at a major and he finished T4 at the U.S. Open.

Patrick Reed (+4000)

The defending champion at this event, Reed finished T15 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and then T55 at the American Express. But he has gone T23-T13-T6-1-T19 in his last five starts at Torrey Pines, and that last result is from the U.S. Open.
