Farmers Insurance Open target proflie:

Bombers. Bombers. Bombers. Total driving (long and straight) a big advantage but ultimately the further out from the tips, the better. Then, a great short game gets it done on and around pretty large fiery Poa (south) surfaces. The cream always rises to the top.

The courses (SC yardage pre renovations)

Torrey Pines NC: par 72 7258 yds, BG greens
Torrey Pines SC: par 72 7,698 yds, PA greens

Key features: Long, hard to hit fairways. Thick rough along fairways and around greens. Coastal vistas. Elevated pretty large (6,000 sqft) Poa greens, tiered, (South course) that are hard to get up and down on, and run back towards centre

Premium on: Strokes gained off the tee (SG:OTT), high ball flight from approaches, bogey avoidance, par 5 performance, strong scrambling skills, lag putting

Chicken nuggets:

Torrey South has seen some changes ahead of the 2021 US Open to be held here (Tees, bunkering and around the greens)

The 2019 Farmers Insurance finally put to bed the irritating narrative of the eventual winner having an advantage if playing the South course first. Justin Rose began his tournament on the North course (and blitzed the field), while the previous 8 editions RANDOMLY saw the winner from the opposite draw

Xander Schauffele home game. Pat Perez's dad is an announcer here. Tiger woods. Joaquin Niemann won 2 junior events at Torrey Pines.

Farmers Insurance Open Featured Tip

Joaquin Niemann 50/1 is the man I've had pegged for the Farmers Insurance Open 2020. It was only the Junior World Championship he won back to back here at Torrey but South course winning experience will stand him in good stead. 1 of golf's upcoming stars, Niemann won his maiden PGA Tour title at Greenbrier at the end of last year. He started 2020 with a 5th place on a big course at Kapalua. He owns a flat ball flight off the tee and ranked 35th in 2019 in strokes gained: OTT which I like for Torrey Pines, especially if it blows...

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
