Part of the PGA tour, the open attracts the most skilled of professional golfers, including the world's No. 1 golfer Tiger Woods. Make sure to snag your Farmers Insurance Open tickets to watch the best of the best duke it out par for par.

Event

The Farmers Insurance Open is a professional PGA Tour golf tournament played annually in San Diego, California. Held at the start of the season, the Farmers Insurance Open marks the beginning of the PGA Tour and the annual "West Coast Swing." The tournament is played at the Torrey Pines Golf Course overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With both a North Course and South Course, Torrey Pines is considered a challenging course for even the most experienced players. Both courses play to a Par 72, with the South Course measuring at 7,607 yards and the North Course totaling 6,874 yards.

History

Originally called the San Diego Open, the tournament began in 1952. In 1985, the name of the tournament was changed to reflect the sponsorship of different corporations. In addition to being the San Diego Open, the tournament has been sponsored by Lehman Brothers, Buick and Isuzu. Finally, in 2010, the Farmers Insurance group took sponsorship of the tournament and renamed the event. Since 1999, the tournament has been dominated by Tiger Woods, who has won a record seven times.

Woods last won in 2013 with a 14 under par performance and entered the 2014 tournament with lofty expectations. Unfortunately, Woods had a less than favorable performance in the tournament and missed the cut with a round of 79. His performance on the course was highlighted by making a bogey or worse on seven straight holes. With Tiger Woods down for the count, the Farmers Insurance Open was anyone's tournament to win. In the end, the victory went to the virtually unknown Scott Stallings, who rallied to win from three strokes down with a birdie putt on the 18th hole. The victory secured Stallings a total of more than $6 million for his four days of work.

In the course's 62-year history, the tournament has been won more than once by seven different players. In addition to the seven victories by Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson is a three-time winner, and there have been five different players who have won the tournament twice.

Trivia

Even though the course is considered challenging, many players have been able to post low scores because of the beautiful and balmy San Diego weather. The low round tournament score for the North Course is 61 and was first set in 1990 by Mark Brooks before being matched in 2007 by Brandt Snedeker. On the South Course, Tiger Woods holds the course record with a 62 set in his first championship season of 1999. In 1954, the tournament was won by an amateur player named Gene Littler, who went on to have a Hall of Fame career as a professional golfer.

Spectator Experience

The Farmers Insurance Open is regularly recognized as one of the most accessible golf tournaments for fans because spectators are given the opportunity to get up close and personal with the golfers while watching all the action. If catching a glimpse of the stars is a priority, officials recommend attending the tournament during the first two rounds when crowds are more sparse. Other tips include bringing a pair of comfortable shoes for walking from hole to hole and scouting out multiple locations at each hole to watch the action.
