The PGA Tour makes its way to beautiful Southern California for the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open at the iconic Torrey Pines Golf Course. The 156-golfer field features six of the world’s top-10 golfers and is absolutely stacked with some of golf’s biggest names. Names like; Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth, and many more. Defending champion Patrick Reed is back in the field and is listed at +4000 by oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook.

With the NFL Conference Championship games played the same weekend; the PGA decided not to compete with NFL Championship Sunday, meaning the Farmers Insurance Open starts on a Wednesday. The golfers will alternate between the North and South course over the first two rounds. After the cut, the remaining two rounds will be played on the South Course with the tournament concluding Saturday.

Torrey Pines has been home to the US Open twice. Once in 2008, when Tiger Woods defeated Rocco Mediate in a 19-hole Monday playoff. And again in 2021, when Rahm defeated Louis Oosthuizen in a resilient come from behind effort.

There’s no surprise Rahm is the odd-on favorite. He’s the World No.1 golfer and won here last year in the US Open, as well as winning this tournament back in 2017. He will look to improve on his T14 finish last week at The American Express.

At first glance the first name that jumps off the page screaming value is Luke List at +8000. While this would be a tough tournament to take down as his first career win, his game shapes up well here. He hits the ball deep, he’s fairly accurate off the tee and he does well to avoid bogeys with strong play around the greens. Now the question is, when is he finally going to play well with the flat stick and get his first career victory? Either way, he has the tools in his bag for gamblers to take a small shot at +8000.
