2024 Farmers Insurance Open preview

The Farmers Insurance Open is this week, and the PGA Tour gets to San Diego for the Torrey Pines event. This is a two-course tournament, where players have to take advantage of the North Course and then figure out a way to handle the South Course in the mid- to upper-60s for three days to have a chance to win.

This field is exceptionally strong, and it finishes on Saturday. We've had three winners out of nowhere to start the year.

2024 Farmers Insurance Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Xander Schauffele: Xander has been great out of the gate, finishing strong at both Kapalua and the AmEx.

2. Max Homa: The defending champion has a win and a T-9 here in four years, and that's pretty good for me.

3. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa got his year off to a good start after a solid finish to 2023. Decent record here.

4. Justin Thomas: Thomas didn't finish the job at the AmEx, but he clearly looks like a guy who has figured out some things.

5. Sungjae Im: Sungjae has been in the top six here in the last two years and has played well so far, but he should do better at a place where par means something more.

6. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay was in the top fifth of the field at Kapalua, and he's generally consistent, but he hasn't anything to show for at this venue.

7. Ludvig Aberg: Aberg has slowed down a bit to start the year, and he was bound to run into that. This place should suit him with his length.

8. Eric Cole: Eric Cole just finds a way to get things done and finish well, so that should continue here.

9. Tony Finau: Finau has a strong affinity for Torrey Pines, and he played pretty well last week in an event where pars mean getting lapped.

10. Sahith Theegala: The Californian loves playing in his home state, and this is a great venue for him to showcase his skill set.
