Torrey Pines North hosts 2024 APGA Tour Farmers Insurance Invitational

Torrey Pines North hosts 2024 APGA Tour Farmers Insurance Invitational

The Farmers Insurance Open, the PGA Tour’s fourth event of the 2024 season, shifts to the South Course at Torrey Pines for Friday’s third round and Sunday’s final round.

That once again leaves the North Course wide open for the Advocates Professional Golf Association Tour, which was established in 2010 as a non-profit organization with the mission to bring greater diversity to the game of golf.

This will be the fifth year for the APGA Tour Farmers Insurance Invitational, which features an 18-player field playing a 36-hole tournament on Saturday and Sunday.

This event is the first on the APGA Tour’s 2024 schedule and with the PGA Tour’s Farmers event wrapping up on Saturday, Golf Channel will stay through Sunday with live coverage of the final round of the APGA event for a third straight year, starting at 5 p.m. ET.

The total purse is $100,000, with $30,000 going to the winner.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate five great years of competing at Torrey Pines in the APGA Farmers Insurance Invitational,” said APGA Tour Co-Founder Ken Bentley. “The experience of competing on a world-class golf course in PGA Tour conditions is invaluable for our players, along with the learning opportunities that come with interacting with Tour players throughout the week.”

The APGA Tour says: “The support of the APGA Tour and its players are part of an ongoing effort from Farmers Insurance to help advance its commitment to growth in the game of golf. The national insurer provides support for APGA Tour and the APGA Foundation to help provide assistance for players at all stages of their journey.”
