Torrey Pines is Now Even Longer

by Roz Roberts III

The South Course at Torrey Pines has always been one of the longer, most difficult courses on the PGA Tour but in preparation for the 2021 US Open, Rees Jones re-designed the South Course adding some bunkers and new tee boxes and the course can now play at a monster 7.765 yards...the longest of any course to host a PGA Tour event.  Starting tomorrow, Michael Thompson and the rest of the PGA Tour will get their first look at the renovations as the Farmers Insurance Open starts.

Michael will play his first round on the North Course which should play as the easier of the two courses although the North Course was renovated three years ago to make it harder as well.  Michael is grouped with Peter Malnati and Sam Ryder.  They tee off at 10:10am PT from the tenth hole of the North Course.
