About the Farmers Insurance Open

Like the majority of tournaments on both the European and PGA Tour, the Farmers Insurance Open benefits from commercial sponsorship but to some older fans, it may be remembered as the Buick Invitational.

The tournament is played in a standard match play format over four days with a cut after the second round. In recent years winners have included Jason Day, after an epic six hole playoff against Alex Noren in 2017 and Jon Rahm the year previous. However it’s Tiger Woods who has seen the most success at the tournament with seven victories.

Spyglass Hill

Spyglass Hill is part of the phenomenal grouping of courses to span the Monterey Peninsula that demands plenty from the golfer, thanks in large part to Trent Jones' incredible design and the unrelenting coastal winds that sweep in from the Pacific.
