Who’s got the best shot of the Top 3 choices: Rahm, Rose or McIlroy?
We might as well throw Jason Day in this group. Day’s odds are at +1600, but he won the 2018 Famers Insurance Open in a multi-hole playoff over Alexander Noren and Ryan Palmer. Day shot a -10 overall and should have no trouble hitting the ball over Torrey Pines North and Torrey Pines South.
Although Day will hit the ball well, 2019 could be Jon Rahm’s breakout year. The 24-year-old had a decent 2018. So far, his 2019 has been stellar. He followed up his win in the Hero World Challenge with Top 10 finishes in both the Sentry Tournament of Champions and the Desert Classic.
Of the Top 4 golfers, consider grabbing the chalk.
Of the +2000 or less choices, who figures to be in the running on Sunday?
If we leave Jason Day out of the mix, all 4 +1800 to +2000 golfers have a shot to win. Tony Finau shot a -7 at last year’s Farmers Insurance Open while Marc Leishman shot a -6. This season, Xander Shauffele already has 2 wins from 4 tournaments played. He took home the WGC-HSBC Champions with a -14 before shooting a -23 to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Then there’s Tiger Woods. The Great One shot a -3 at the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open. That’s not bad. It was also before he had started hitting the ball really well with the new swing. Tiger could surprise. If he wins, this might be the last time we can back Woods at those big odds.
Which +2500 to +5000 golfer looks like a possible 2019 Farmers Insurance Open winner?
Keegan Bradley hasn’t hit the ball well in his last couple of tournaments. Before finishing 29th at the Sony Open in Hawaii and 27th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, he had scored a decent 15th at the Hero World Challenge. His 6th place finish at the WGC-HSBC Champions was also a decent showing.
Bradley finished 5th at last year’s Farmers Insurance Open after a -8. His form could definitely return at Torrey Pines. There’s nothing wrong with the +5000 odds, either.
Is there a golfer not listed at over +5000 who can win the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open?
Hideki Matsuyama’s yet to get going. The guess here’s that it’s only a matter of time. He’s offering +6600 odds to win the Farmers Insurance Open. Last year, he shot a -5, good enough for a 12th place finish.
If he puts it together this week, Hideki could take the trophy at massive odds. He’s worth a look as a flyer.
