After Jon Rahm won for the second time in two PGA Tour starts in 2023 at The American Express, he and the worlds best head to San Diego for the Farmers Insurance Open. Five of the top ten players are teeing it up, with the event starting a day earlier than normal. That’s so the event can end on a Saturday before the NFL’s AFC and NFC championship games kick off Sunday.

The South and North courses will be alternated the first two days, with those making the cut moving to the South Course for the duration of the tournament. Last year, Will Zalatoris dropped a playoff to Luke List. Ten of the last 14 iterations of this championship have resulted in a winning margin of just one stroke, or a playoff was needed.

Xander Schauffele a Solid Wager

Xander Schauffele put to rest any concerns people may have had about his withdrawal from the Sentry TOC (back), as he tied for third last week at The American Express. That was the X-Man’s five straight top-10 result in tournaments he’s finished. Taking that further, in his last 14 completed events, he has top-20’s in all but one of them, including three victories (Zurich Classic, Travelers, Scottish Open).

This is a home game for Schauffele as well, as he’ll have the backing of the local crowd. He very nearly gave them what they wanted two years ago, where he wound up in a tie for second here. At +1200 he has the third shortest odds on the board, but that’s still decent enough value.

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Picks and Value Bets

  1. Collin Morikawa (+1600): The last time Collin Morikawa teed it up, it appeared like he was going to cruise to an easy victory at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He ended up ceding the title to Jon Rahm, but it was still a very solid runner-up result. He’s a streaky putter, but if he can be halfway decent on the greens, he can be a force.
  2. Jason Day (+2800): Something about Torrey Pines brings out the best in Jason Day. He’s won the tournament twice (2015, 2018), and was runner-up in 2014. Last year, he was the 54-hole co-leader, before he eventually settled for a third place tie. In five of his last six events the Aussie has placed inside the top-25.
  3. Davis Thompson (+11000): If you’re looking for a strong option in the top 10/20 markets, look no further than Davis Thompson with great long shot potential. Just last weekend he went toe-to-toe with Jon Rahm, where he eventually finished in solo second, a shot out of a playoff.
