Torrey Awaits

by Roz Roberts III

After a soggy week in Palm Desert, the sun will be shining this week on Michael Thompson and the rest of the PGA Tour as they compete in the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego.  The weather should provide beautiful vistas of the California coast with plenty of sunshine.  The only weather concern will come on Friday when it is expected to be windy.

The Farmers will utilize both the North and South courses at Torrey Pines.  The South course is the more difficult of the two courses although recent changes on the North course have lengthened it.  The South course wass the highest scoring par 72 course on Tour last year.  It's narrow fairways, length, and long rough always provide a difficult test.

Michael will tee off at 10:50am PT from the first hole of the South course on Thursday.   He will be playing with Morgan Hoffman and Jon Curran.  They tee off intermediately after the featured group of Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, and Tiger Woods.

It should be an interesting exercise in patience as I follow Michael and his group while trying to navigate the crowds.  I will try to provide some live Tweets from the course.  The South course will have ShotLink coverage so you should be able to follow the leaderboard too.
