Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines

Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey PinesOn January 23-26, 2014, a professional golf tournament, The Farmers Insurance Open, will be hosted at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California. An opportunity to see Phil Mickelson, a veteran golfer going for the career Grand Slam, Jordan Spieth, the 2013 Rookie of the Year, and of course Tiger Woods, is the chance of a lifetime. The Farmers Insurance Open is one of the stops on the PGA Tour, and is considered one of the greatest golf events of the year.  

This tournament, also known as the West Coast Swing, originated in 1952 as the San Diego Open.  Torrey Pines, a 36-hole golf course, became the official event location in 1968, and in 2010, Farmers Insurance Group of Companies became the primary sponsor for the event.  Farmers Insurance has made an enduring name in American history being one of the few businesses to start and survive the Great Depression.  Now Farmers Insurance is one of America’s largest insurers.

Farmers Insurance Open is a week long event featuring pro-am tournaments and more.  Pro-am tournaments are exciting because ordinary people get to play with the professionals.  Pro-am match ups are scheduled on Monday and Thursday.  Conveniently nestled on the fairways  is a restaurant and wine bar perfect for refreshments.  For live tournament coverage while on the course fans can visit the Michelob Ultra 19th Hole, which houses a LED screen for the public.  For a little bit of history and class fans can visit the Cadillac Phaeton display located in Alaska Airlines Fan Village.  If that wasn’t enough, there is also a Smash Course where the public can test their golf skills as well as a photo booth.
