Which golfer has the best shot of winning the Farmers Insurance Open? Rory McIlroy or Jon Rahm?
At the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open, Rory McIlroy finished tied for fifth. He shot a -14. If not for a 71 second round, McIlroy might have challenged winner Justin Rose. But, Jon Rahm also shot a -14.
Rahm stormed out of the gates last year. He shot a first-round 62. He failed in the second and fourth rounds, though. Jon shot a 72 in both those rounds. That ended his shot at the title. He should be in a great position to win this year. But he won’t.
Although it’s tough to back chalk, Rory is on fire. McIlroy finished third at the ZOZO Championship. He won the WGC-HSBC Champions. Back McIlroy if you’re looking for chalk.
Which golfer among Woods, Rose, Schauffele, and Matsuyama, offers the fairest odds to win the Farmers Insurance Open?
Justin Rose won this tournament last year. Xander Schauffele has a couple of second-place finishes in his last 4 tournaments played. Matsuyama has also struck the ball well. But no golfer has a history at Torrey Pines like Tiger Woods.
Tiger has won the Farmers Insurance Open, formerly known as the Buick Invitational, 7 times in 12 tournaments played. He finished in the Top 5 four other times. It means that Woods hasn’t finished out of the Top 5 in 12 Famers Insurance Open Tournaments. He’s not only the pick ahead of Rose, Schauffele, and Matsuyama, he’s the overall pick to win this week.
What are the two best golfers to consider backing at odds of +2500 to +5500?
Jason Day shot a -14 at the 2019 Famers Insurance Open. Although he hasn’t hit the ball well this PGA Season, he could turn his form around here. Also, consider Jordan Spieth.
He’s played awful in 4 tournaments. But he did shoot a 69 at the Hero World Challenge. He’s had plenty of time to get his swing together for this. Not only that, but he shot a -7 last year. Spieth is spotty, no doubt. The odds require a look, though.

Reed shot a -11 last year, but is he this much better than Sungjae Im? Im played great at The American Express Open. He can beat Reed.
This is a toss-up. Either golfer can win this matchup. But we’re leaning towards Fowler. Although Woodland has had better finishes in recent tournaments, Rickie’s finishes happened in higher quality tournaments. Fowler wins.
The odds are excellent on Tiger to upset the favorite. Woods dominates at Torrey Pines. He’s played the course since he was a 5-year-old. Also, Tiger won the ZOZO Championship and finished fourth at the Hero World Challenge. He took time off after the Hero World to prepare for this. Tiger will roar.
