2022 Farmers Insurance Open preview

The Farmers Insurance Open is the unofficial start of the year, with the strongest field of 2022 to date at Torrey Pines. This field packs a punch, and it's finally overtaken the Middle East swing, which had clout last decade in luring players away from the PGA Tour's West Coast Swing. Now? Not so much.

Take a look at my top 10 for this week.

2022 Farmers Insurance Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Jon Rahm: Rahm was annoyed by the setup at the AmEx. Well, he gets close to the opposite of that this week. He loves Torrey.

2. Bryson DeChambeau: DeChambeau had an epic meltdown in the US Open at Torrey last year, and I get the sense he wants to make up for that.

3. Hideki Matsuyama: Matsuyama won last time out, has two wins on the season and a solid track record at Torrey Pines. Good enough for me.

4. Justin Thomas: Thomas isn't a big Torrey guy, but he's still a huge player in the field and should do well.

5. Tony Finau: Top-5 Tony is an even bigger horse-for-course pick here than at the AmEx, and he's playing well enough.

6. Will Zalatoris: Zalatoris seemed to tire out a bit at the end of last year, but he opens the year with a T-6 and looked good doing it.

7. Dustin Johnson: Johnson didn't win in 2021. That's a down year for him. Still, he's freaking Dustin Johnson.

8. Sam Burns: Burns should probably be higher, coming off a great run at the Tournament of Champions. He could easily win here.

9. Marc Leishman: Leishman played well enough in Hawaii, and he's got a great, great track record at Torrey Pines.

10. Xander Schauffele: Schauffele is playing well dating back to last fall, and he was runner-up here last year.
