Alrighty folks, this weekend on the PGAT we head to one of the best courses in the US being Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open. This week is slightly different as the tournament begins on Wednesday and finishes on Saturday due to both the AFC & NFC championship games on Sunday.
Torrey Pines is as iconic as they come and we usually get an unreal finish each and every year. As always, a little background of Torrey. TP is a par 72 and one of the longest courses on tour tipping out at just over 7700 yards. Each year we see that usually the winner has tremendous accuracy specifically with the driver and good length as well. This will help us picking our guys as it would be very shocking if the Brian Harmon’s of the world are able to have success here.
Again, being so early in the season we are only picking a couple guys that we see good fit and great value. Still not over Sam Burns going Double, Double to end the American Express yesterday completely blowing the tournament but sometimes unfortunately, that’s just the way it goes. We cash Sam Burns Top 20 but our Outright Ticket doesn’t get to the window.

Our first golfer we are going with this week is one of our favorites. Sungjae Im, has a pretty decent track record around Torrey Pines finishing Top 5 in last years tournament. Sungjae has great accuracy with his driver and seems to separate himself from the pack playing at longer courses on tour. IM has also played in every tournament this season which has a leg up on some of his competition already. Sungjae Im top 20 (+110) Outright Winner (+2000)
Our last golfer we see value in this week is Sahith Theegala. Sahith has had a lovely start to the season already finishing 2nd at the Sentry. Theegala also had a very nice showing in last years Famers Insurance Open finishing tied for 4th. Mr. Theegala is a top 10 player on tour when it comes to length and his short game is some of the best around. I think Sahith gets right back to business here in his 2nd start at Torrey with vengeance. Sahith Theegala Top 20 (+150) Outright Winner (+3000)
As always, Enjoy the Farmers Insurance Open & Always wager responsibly
