2022 Farmers Insurance Open Recap

After both scored -15 for the tournament, Will Zalatoris and Luke List battled it out in a playoff. List got the better of Zalatoris to finish first. Zalatoris settled for second place.

This year’s chalk, Jon Rahm, finished a tied third with Cameron Tringale and Jason Day at -14. Joaquin Niemann, Justin Rose, Pat Perez, Sungjae Im, and Aaron Rai all finished tied sixth at – 13.

Four players finished at -12 and tied eleventh: Austin Smotherman, Michael Thompson, Taylor Montgomery, Si Woo Kim, and Billy Horschel.

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Top Pick

At first glance, Will Zalatoris doesn’t have much chance of competing for first place. Zalatoris finished a tied thirty-sixth at last week’s The American Express. But Zalatoris shot a -16.

Will didn’t shoot a round at par or over par, which is a sign he’s rounding into his best form. The American Express was Zalatoris’ second tournament played this season.

No doubt, he’s going to improve in this. Will knows both the North and the South courses well. He’ll be right there in the end and the odds are more than fair.

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Second Pick

Jon Rahm is looking for his third straight tournament title after winning the Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express.

Before taking the trophy home from both those tournaments, Rahm finished a tied fourth at The CJ Cup in October. If we throw out the Hero World Challenge, which is a limited participant tournament, Rahm has rolled.

So, yes, if you don’t mind the low odds, Jon Rahm is more than playable to win a third straight.

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Third Pick

At the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open, Tony Finau didn’t make the cut. But before writing off Finau’s chances to win this, it’s important to note that Tony shot a 67 first round.

Finau followed up the 67 with a disastrous 77 second round. Tony won the Cadence Bank Houston Open, finished a tied seventh at the Sentry, and finished a tied sixteenth at The American Express. For sure, Finau is playing well enough to win this.

2023 Farmers Insurance Open Underdog Pick

Montgomery offers better odds than he probably should to win the Farmers Insurance Open. Taylor has four top ten finishes and eight finishes at fifteenth or better in nine tournaments played.

Last week, Montgomery finished fifth at The American Express. Montgomery’s tied eleventh at -12, three strokes off the winner, in this last year suggests he’s coming up to a break out performance. At the odds, Taylor Montgomery is the best underdog play on the board.
