The Farmers Insurance Open is an annual PGA Tour event played at the scenic Torrey Pines South Course, San Diego. This tournament has a rich history as it has been played continuously since 1952, making it one of the longest-running events on the PGA Tour.

The tournament is celebrated at Torrey Pines’ two championship golf courses: the North and South Courses. The South Course is the main venue and hosts the final two rounds. This par 72 course was redesigned by Rees Jones in 2001 and measures just over 7,600 yards from the tips. The South Course is famous for its ocean views from the cliff and its challenging design.

Farmers Insurance Open 2024 – Schedule & Prize

The Farmers Insurance Open 2024 will occur from January 24 to 27, featuring a stellar participation of world-class players who will compete for a prize pool of $9,000,000. The tournament features an impressive list of past champions, including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jason Day, and the winner of the previous edition, Max Homa. Homa comes to this tournament with the mission of competing in front of great talents such as Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Ludvig Aberg, Xander Schauffele, and Patrick Cantlay.

The Course: Torrey Pines South

The Torrey Pines South course is the host venue for the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open. This iconic municipal course by the sea was designed by William Bell and opened in 1957. The South course was later redesigned by Rees Jones in 2001 to host the 2008 US Open.

The South course plays as a par 72, measuring 7,753 yards from the tips. It has narrow fairways lined by Torrey pines and tricky Poa annua greens. The field has two par 5s on the front nine but only one on the back nine.

With its spectacular ocean views, the Torrey Pines South course is one of the most recognizable and challenging layouts on the PGA Tour. Strong coastal winds, narrow fairways, and slippery greens will test the best players in the world next week at the Farmers Insurance Open 2024.

The Farmers Insurance Open is known for having unpredictable weather, especially when it comes to wind. The tournament features along the Pacific Ocean at Torrey Pines, which makes it very susceptible to strong winds coming out of the water.

This year’s tournament is shaping up to have winds of around 10-15 mph for the first two days, but then it will intensify to 15-20 mph on Saturday and Sunday. The Torrey Pines South course has many holes directly along the ocean, such as the par 3. When the wind blows from the west, these holes become extremely difficult.
