A star-studded field featuring Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm will take on the Torrey Pines’ North and South courses as part of this week’s Farmers Insurance Open.
After withdrawing right before The American Express due to a tweaked back, Rahm will be back in action at an event that he loves. The World No. 2 won this tournament in 2017 and finished runner-up last year. Meanwhile, this will be McIlroy’s first PGA Tour start of 2021 after finishing in third place last week at the European Tour’s stop in Abu Dhabi. McIlroy is playing Farmers for the second straight year after finishing T-3 a year ago.
Along with that top two, there will be a deep lineup including three golfers in the top 10 of the FedEx Cup points standings: Harris English, Viktor Hovland and Carlos Ortiz. In addition, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day will both be making their first starts of 2021, and local stars such as Phil Mickelson and Xander Schauffele will be taking part in the event.
Last year’s winner, Marc Leishman, will attempt to become the event’s fourth back-to-back winner.
The winner will receive 500 FedEx Cup points and a $1.35 million share of the $7.5 million purse.
