Farmers Insurance Open 2024 PGA Tour picks, odds, players to watch

2023 Farmers Insurance Open

For many, this week is the unofficial start of the golf season.

The PGA Tour is back at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California, for the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open. The property’s North and South courses will be used for the first two rounds before the final 36 are played on the South Course on Friday and Saturday — yes, there’s a Saturday finish this week.

Defending champion Max Homa is back to defend his title and is joined in the field by Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, Collin Morikawa, Ludvig Aberg, Tony Finau and Jason Day.

We haven’t seen Homa since he tied for 14th at the 2024 opener in Maui.

Betting preview

Xander Schauffele tees off on one of the Pete Dye Stadium Course during the final round of The American Express at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif., Sunday, Jan. 21, 2024.

Xander Schauffele (12/1): T-3

Sungjae Im (20/1): T-25

J.T. Poston (30/1): T-11

Jason Day (35/1): T-34

Another close call with Schauffele tying for third. Credit to you if you bet Nick Dunlap to win outright last week at the AmEx, I don’t feel too bad about missing that one. What a win for the kid.
