This is the 61st year a PGA TOUR event has been held in San Diego, beginning with the San Diego Open in 1952. For 51 straight years, the Century Club of San Diego has been the local non-profit organization for the tournament. 2013 also marks the 46th time the event is being held at Torrey Pines Golf Course and the fourth year of Farmers Insurance sponsorship of the tournament.

2013 Tournament Field

This year will feature a field of 156 players. Each player will be playing one round on the Torrey Pines' South and North Courses on Thursday and Friday. After Friday’s round, the field will be cut to the lowest 70 scores and ties. The final two rounds will be played on the South Course on Saturday and Sunday.

2013 Tournament Purse is $6.1 Million

The 2013 Farmers Insurance Open will feature a purse of $6.1 million in prize money. First place money will be $1,098,000. In comparison, when the tournament was moved to Torrey Pines in 1968, the purse was $150,000 and Tom Weiskopf took home the winner’s check of $30,000.

2012 Farmers Insurance Open Champion


Brandt Snedeker captured the 2012 Farmers Insurance Open with a two-hole playoff victory over Kyle Stanley. Snedeker made a par 3 on the 16th hole and Stanley made bogey for the win. Brandt Snedeker, along with Farmers Insurance Open champions Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Bubba Watson represented the U.S. on the Ryder Cup team.

Interested to hear, and I know Golfspy_Matt is especially concerned, how the Phil circus plays out this week. At least he'll probably be sleeping in his own bed this week, which should count for something. Not Matt, Phil.

My apologizes if you guys have already done this in the past...I didn't see any going at the start of the year and enjoy reading real time discussions on the tournaments. Hope you don't mind! I'll try to keep em current and post the winning witb in them too.

Good points on Phil but I've got a feeling there is going to be some more 'Phil' to the story.

What's with the split the rounds across the courses for Thurs/Fri but then not for Sat/Sun?

Maybe I'm weird, but it seems like it would make more sense to either stay on one course for all 4 rounds, or go 2/2 if you want to split them up.

Plus wouldn't it add a touch more drama to the final round? Instead of knowing where to miss since you just played it yesterday, you now have to play like the rest of us, where the sneaky green's keeper might have made slight changes while you're away.

No apologies necessary, if we did it it was because no one else had started the topic. I am happy to participate in any ones topic. I just want to talk golf.

They will each get to play the North Course once on either Thursday or Friday before the cut. With 156 players in the field it very crowded when they all play one course so playing two courses is common. The Byron Nelson which I have gone to many times is played on two courses. I think the players like that type of set up also because it speed up play.

At first I thought that it was raining and everyone was carrying umbrellas. But apparently those were shield to keep from getting hit by Phil Mickelson.

Cut him some slack, if he won, he'd lose over 600K.

That is true, so for every wayward shot he was actually making more money, and screwing the state of California.

RR's comment on making money and screwing the state of California with every wild bomb made my day!!!!! Thanks buddy.

My wife is inheriting some money from a relative he died in that state - I look at what taxes did to her cousin's estate and think - "Are you kidding me?" And they're going broke? With that type of income stream and tax base? Really?

At any rate was fun to watch real, full field golf on the mainland the past couple of days. Can't imagine Tiger not hoisting the trophy come Sunday.

I guess I'm wondering what Richard sees in his swing that looks flawed - looks pretty good to me although we are in agreement that its the majors that count for the Tiger - there's one club in the bag that I'm wondering about when that part of the season starts and we won't know until mid-afternoon Sunday of each major whether or not it really works. Should be exciting.
