Farmers Insurance Open – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Well, that was some performance by Nick Dunlap at the Amex last week. The first amateur to win on tour in 30 years.

Well done to him. He is clearly going to be a huge star in the game.

It was a bit of a frustrating week for us as Keith Mitchell finished with a wet sail and posted one of the lowest Sunday rounds, but finished 9th just outside the places.

This week things get exponentially tougher as we head to Torey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open. It’s a two-course rotation with Torey Pines North and South courses being used before Torey Pines South is used for the final round.

The south course is a real brute, running out at 7,700 yards, one of the longest on tour. Length of the tee is needed in order to get a crack at the difficult greens. If the wind blows expect many to struggle to break par. I’m going for guys who can get it out there, who have been showing good early season form and as ever, who are offering a bit of value for money each way.

Mitchell played some great golf on Sunday at the Amex to post one of the stand out rounds of the day. I think that will stand him in great stead at Torey Pines this week. He’s got plenty of distance of the tee’s and tends to play the tough courses on the PGA Tour better than most. Keith looks superb value to me here. Easily my bet of the week.

Sepp Straka – Currently at

Straka has been a revelation over the last couple of years on tour. His excellent run saw him pick up his maiden PGA Tour win, record a bunch of top ten finishes and got him onto the victorious Ryder Cup team in 2023. Straka has bags of length and has shown he is more than capable of footing it with the best in the world at tough venues such as Torey Pines.

The young Canadian has shown good form at tough venues. I think Svensson has tons of ability and his price looks excellent each way value here.

Lee Hodges – Currently at

My weekly fix of disappointment. He’ll come good at some stage.
