Gear up for the highly anticipated Farmers Insurance Open, taking place from January 24 to 27, with our top picks from the best sportsbooks.

Course Notes

This week’s PGA Tour event, the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, starts a day early on Wednesday. Torrey Pines is the host course as usual with three rounds at the South Course that has been used for two US Opens, and one at the North Course.

Tiger Woods was close to unbeatable here back in his heyday, bringing an insight into what is needed at this championship venue – which is long straight driving and an ability to adjust to this week’s Poa Annua greens. Settled weather looks like the order of the day this week, as the clifftop venue can be exposed to the natural elements from the Pacific.

Course form has always been a strong metric this week and our two picks, Jason Day and Harris English finished 1st and 2nd in 2015.

Picks Summary

  • Jason Day to Win Outright (+2500)
  • Jason Day to Finish Top 10 (+250)
  • Harris English to Win Outright (+4500)
  • Harris English to Finish in Top 10 (+450)

2024 Farmers Insurance Open

January 24 – 27, 2024 at Torrey Pines


Will Jason Have His Day?

Last week’s easy test down the road in California at the American Express was not particularly well suited to the Australian’s strengths but will work well as a warmup to this week’s Championship Course, test which fundamentally suits him better. Few players over the years hit the golf ball with the length, accuracy and consistency off the tee that Day does, which has always been an advantage this week, particularly for the three rounds at the South Course of Torrey Pines.

Day offered his thoughts on why the course is such a demanding test and how his ability off the tee is of paramount importance when he said,

“It’s so demanding on the driver, you have to get yourself in position. If you’re not and with how the greens are starting to bounce, it’s very difficult to get yourself back into position leaving yourself in the right spot to get up and down.”

Jason Day

Day started the year at the Sentry in Hawaii after bookending 2023 with a win at the Grant Thornton Invitational with Lydia Ko, who won on the LPGA yesterday.

We believe this is a huge year for thirty-six-year-old former world #1 with him seemingly fully recovered from injury.

This is the week that I am sure Jason Day will have earmarked as his best opportunity to win early in the 2024 season and we expect a strong performance. Looking around the available odds, the best price for Jason Day winning the Farmers Insurance Open is Bet365’s, at +2500.

Golf Pick: Jason Day to Win Outright (+2500) at Bet365

Golf Pick: Jason Day to Finish Top 10 (+250) at Bet365


Harris English Looks Rock Solid This Week

Our second pick is Harris English, a player who started the season in strong form on both PGA Tour outings in Hawaii.

The thirty-four-year-old from Georgia has always had a strong record at Torrey Pines, which is not a surprise given his ball striking has always been elite level.

His best performance at the track came in the 2021 US Open when he finished an impressive 3rd to Jon Rahm. His previous best performance was on debut back in 2015 when he was runner-up to our first selection, Jason Day.

Like Day, English is back to full fitness having been under an injury cloud since 2022 when he was forced to have surgery on his right hip to repair a torn labrum. A surgery like that naturally means a period of convalescence, and it has taken English a while to find the consistency in his game.

His stats indicate that the consistency is back, and he looked strong across the board from putting to ball striking in Hawaii, so with his price of (+4500) at Bet365, this week is a good one to support Harris English.

Golf Pick: Harris English to Win Outright (+4500) at Bet365

Golf Pick: Harris English to Finish in Top 10 (+450) at Bet365
