Another week is here, which means that there’s another 2022 PGA TOUR event right around the corner. The Farmers Insurance Open is next on the schedule and it takes place at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA from Thursday, Jan. 27 to Sunday, Jan. 30.
Last year’s Farmers Insurance Open was won by Patrick Reed, who finished five strokes ahead of five golfers who tied for second place. However, he isn’t the favorite going into this year’s competition. Instead, that honor goes to Jon Rahm, who BetOnline is heavily favoring to win this tournament at +700 odds.
Rahm is the world’s No. 1 golfer, so it’s hardly a surprise that he’s favored to win in San Diego this week. He’s also competed in the Farmers Insurance Open five times in the past, finishing seventh or better in four of those outings.
His best finish — by far — came in 2018 when he won the entire tournament, finishing three strokes ahead of Charles Howell III and Pan Cheng-tsung. Rahm also had a strong showing in 2020, however, he placed second after losing to Marc Leishman by a single stroke.
Rahm hasn’t played too much this season, competing in just three events on the current tour. After getting cut at the Fortinet Championship, he placed second at the Sentry Tournament of Champions before trying for 14th at last week’s American Express. Only time will tell if he can build on those showings and win his first title of the year.
Farmers Insurance Open Odds: Thomas a Distant Second
Nobody really comes close to Rahm’s odds to win the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open. Keeping that in mind, Justin Thomas is the next-closest golfer at +1400 odds.
The 28-year-old Louisville, KY native is having quite the 2022 campaign to remember. After helping the United States win the Ryder Cup, he’s seen three top-5 finishes in his last four outings. He’s shown a lot of poise over this stretch and has come close to winning his first tournament since THE PLAYERS Championship in March 2021.
With that being said, Thomas doesn’t have a lot of Farmers Insurance Open experience under his belt. He’s competed in the Torrey Pines event twice over his career, placing 10th in his first outing before failing to make the cut in his second. It’s been nearly six years since he’s last entered the tournament, so only time will tell if he’ll have a better showing this time around.
Schauffele, DeChambeau Have Shot to Win
Both Xander Schauffele and Bryson DeChambeau share the third-best odds (+1800) to win the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open.
Aside from being on the Ryder Cup-winning team, Schauffele has finished 12th or worse in each of his four solo showings this season. While he’ll try to change that in San Diego, he hasn’t had the greatest track record at Torrey Pines. Of the six times that he’s entered the Farmers Insurance Open, he’s failed to make the cut four times. On the other hand, he did place second at last year’s event, so it’ll be interesting to see if he can reach the top this time.
Meanwhile, DeChambeau has only entered two tournaments this season, placing T-14th and T-25th at the Hero World Challenge and Sentry Tournament of Champions, respectively. His 2021 campaign saw a lot of highs and lows, so a solid showing in San Diego this week would be a great way to get his season back on track. He’s failed to make the cut in both of his Farmers Insurance Open appearances, so something has to change if he wants to experience success by the time Sunday rolls around.
