Farmers Insurance Open: How to watch, TV schedule, streaming, tee times, more

The PGA Tour will stay on the West Coast for the second California event of the 2024 season as Torrey Pines hosts the Farmers Insurance Open.

It’s the third full-field event of the year and is the only tournament that runs Wednesday through Saturday. That’s in large part because CBS will be airing the AFC Championship on Sunday.

This week is also the second straight event where players will take on multiple courses — Torrey Pines North and South.

Here’s everything to know about the fourth PGA Tour event of the year.

The Farmers Insurance Open Preview:

Max Homa is back at Torrey Pines, as he is just the second reigning champion to attempt to defend his title.

Homa is coming in with momentum after a win at the Nedbank Golf Challenge this past November. This week marks his sixth attempted title defense, and he has the game to make it happen.

The magnitude of this week is enormous for the Aon Next 10 and Aon Next 5 players who are not yet qualified for Signature Events.

Whichever five players (not previously exempt) who earn the most FedEx Cup points during the Sony Open, The American Express, and this week will earn a spot into next week’s field at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Michael Kim, who attended Torrey Pines High School, is No. 6 on the Aon Swing 5 standings following his T6 finish last week at The American Express. Kim will make his eighth start at Torrey Pines as he looks to earn his way into Pebble Beach.

Xander Schauffele’s best finish at this event is a T2 in 2021 after he missed the cut in four of his first five starts at this tournament. Now that he has a better feel for the course, this week could be his moment to get another PGA Tour victory. Last week, he recorded a Top 10 finish and challenged the leaders but ran out of holes.

Keegan Bradley finished second to Homa last year and is another player to watch. He lost in a playoff to Grayson Murray at the Sony Open in Hawaii two weeks ago. Don’t count out the New Englander, either.

Last week’s winner, the amateur Nick Dunlap, was expected to play at this event but surprisingly withdrew on Monday.

Collin Morikawa is another Southern California native who opened the 2024 season with a T5 at The Sentry. He finished solo third at this event last year, and Torrey Pines fits his game well.

Homa won last year with a 13-under total score. While there will be plenty of birdies, Torrey Pines’ North and South Courses will challenge players more than fans have seen in the season’s first three weeks.
