We continue our stretch in California as we approach another event that offers two courses as we present the Farmers Insurance Open DFS Course Preview for DraftKings & FanDuel 2021. As we come to a brief end to the West Coast Swing, we’ll finish at beautiful Torrey Pines. The North Course will once again be used for the first two rounds before golfers play their weekend rounds on only the South Course.
As we continue our California Swing, we make a stop at Torrey Pines, where we will have a full field of 152 players. Rory McIlroy will make his first appearance to the PGA since The Masters. Last week he finished 3rd at Abu Dhabi, so we should be expecting him in great form.
It’s good to note that the primary course will be the South Course while the North Course will see 18 holes of action. Also, keep an eye on golfers who do well this week since the South Course will host the US Open.
Just like last week, we’ll have one course with Shotlink Data (South Course) and one without (North Course). The North Course features 7 holes with a birdie rate from 26-57%, with only 5 holes looking at 19-28% bogeys.
The South Course is 7700 yards, par 72, and played on Poa Annua (Bentgrass at the North Course). Features 4 holes with a birdie rate of 30-41%, all being par 5’s. In contrast, looking at 6 holes that have a bogey rate of 23-36%.
The fairways on the South Course are tight, but there are little to no tree linings. It is important to note that the greens are small and will run fast on Poa Greens. Also, Poa Greens tend to be bumpy in the afternoon as temperatures rise. Keep that in mind. Alright, let’s get to the picks!
