2020 Farmers Insurance Open Betting Tips | Thursday to Sunday, 23rd-26th, January 2020

What Will it Take to Win the Farmers Insurance Open?

The South Course is very long and distance off the tee is surely an advantage. Justin Rose is last year’s winner and only ranked 11th for Driving Distance but nobody inside the top seven ranked worse than 23rd. 

A year before, Jason Day won here when ranking second for Driving Distance. The rough is thick, and the fairways are rather narrow. Considering that the fairways are so hard to hit, even the most accurate from the tee is likely to miss them. A missed fairway will be likely to result in a bogey at least. We would favour length over accuracy, but Total Driving is the best metric here. Rose, for example, was eight for Driving Accuracy, so he was both long and at the same time accurate. 

As you would expect from a major championship venue, the South Course is very challenging, and to win there, you have to do everything well. Rose ranked second for Greens in Regulation, and this is not a surprise. 

Rose’s Scrambling figures were not good compared to the majority of Torrey Pines winners even he was ranking as high as 58th. The average of the last five winners is only 20.4. The four winners before Rose were averaging a Scrambling ranking of 11. 

Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In The Farmers Insurance Open

Can we find some clues?

Jon Rahm was the first debutant to win at Torrey Pines since that event was mover there around 50 years ago. So even if we do not consider seven-time winner, Tiger Woods, course form has been a massive indicator.

Scott Stallings hadn’t made the cut here before suddenly winning six years ago, but this is an exception. In fact, he followed that up with a second-place 12 months later. Brandt Snedeker and Jason day have both won this event twice.

Even if it took some time for Rose to get to know the place, once he did, he recorded a fourth and eighth place in the two years before landing victory. Ben Crane, Nick Watney and John Daly all finished inside the top-10 in the previous year or two years in the tournament. So, regardless of what happened in 2017, think carefully before backing someone that doesn’t have course form here.

It is Glen Abbey, a place that has hosted lots of Canadian Open, that has the strongest course correlation. John Rahm was second in the Canadian Open in 2016 and Jonathan Vegas, who won two Canadian Open at Glen Abbey, ended third on debut here in 2011. Jason Day and Bubba Watson, both Farmers winners have finished in the first two places in Canada in 2015. Recent Glen Abbey winners like Brandt Snedeker and Tiger Woods are also multiple Torrey Pines winners.

One could argue that the likes of Wood, Day Snedeker and Day are just high-quality players capable of winning on any course but it is worth remembering that 2009 winner of the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey, Nathan Green, also finished second at Torrey Pines in 2006. In both occasions, he was a massive outsider.

Who are the Market Leaders?

Rory McIlroy finished in fifth place on his debut a year ago and considering how badly first-timers are faring here, that was an impressive performance. He has had a long break as the last time we have seen him was when he finished fourth in the DP World Tour Championship a couple of months ago. Considering his price is very short, I wouldn’t risk it.

The second favourite to win here is Jon Rahm. He won the DP World after a break of two months. The third favourite is Tiger Woods who landed the ZOZO Championship in Japan back in October but hasn’t been seen in the last two months.

Rahm finished 29th and fifth since winning the event, but he was a bit unlucky with that fifth that could have been better. He went within a stroker of Rose last year on Sunday, and he is now up to number three in the world rankings. Surely he has a chance and his short price fully reflect that.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods is interesting considering his price. He has now won three events in the last 15 starts and has already won this tournament a record seven times in addition to a US Open. He is surely Mr Torrey Pines. He finished first and fourth in his last two tournaments and at 11/1 represent great value.

Our Verdict: Tiger Woods To Win The Farmers Insurance Open

Brand Snedeker

We believe we should back the specialists in this event and this is why our second selection is Brand Snedeker. Surely he is not the force he once was and didn’t perform well here a couple of years ago, but he was 12th at the Sony Open, and the feeling is that he is getting back in form. At 45/1 looks a great each-way bet.
