2023 Farmers Insurance Open picks, predictions, field, odds: PGA backs Xander Schauffele at Torrey Pines

Winning has been routine for Jon Rahm, and now he’s headed to a course that holds special meaning when the PGA Tour’s 2023 Farmers Insurance Open starts Wednesday. Rahm won his first PGA Tour title at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open and he captured his first major championship at the US Open at Torrey Pines in 2021. The Spaniard, who has won consecutive PGA Tour events and four of his last six worldwide , leads a strong field that will face stern tests this week. The Farmers Insurance Open field, which also includes top-10 players Xander Schauffele, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Will Zalatoris, will hit two courses this week near San Diego, California. The South Course hosts the final two rounds, and golfers will take to the North Course once during the first two days.

Rahm is the 4-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest 2023 Farmers Insurance Open odds. The rest of the Farmers Insurance Open 2023 field is much further back, with Schauffele (12-1), Tony Finau (12-1) and Morikawa (12-1) next in line. Thomas (13-1) and Zalatoris (14-1) are among six others shorter than 30-1 in the Farmers Insurance Open 2023 field. Before you lock in a 2023 Farmers Insurance Open pick, be sure to check out the PGA Tour predictions and top bets from SportsLine golf insider Patrick McDonald.

McDonald takes a measured approach to his direct selections and has a profitable 2022-23 season. He just missed a massive 130-1 score at the Sony Open when Hayden Buckley finished as runner-up. He swept the Houston Open and backed Finau to win at 25-1, and he’s up more than eight units on his direct bets. That’s a profit of more than $800 for $100 bettors.

McDonald has also been on the money on his matchup bets, cashing huge money on Brendan Steele (80-1) as the first round leader at the Zozo Championship. The expert finished the 2021-22 season with 42 units on his direct bets, including hitting Hudson Swafford (250-1) at last year’s The American Express. Anyone who follows McDonald’s advice has cashed in.

Now McDonald has studied the 2023 Farmers Insurance Open field and has locked in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. You can go to SportsLine now to see all of McDonald’s PGA picks and analysis.

Shockingly, McDonald is fading Thomas, despite his status as a former world no. 1 and one of the favorites. The two-time major champion has finished T-25 and T-40 in his first two starts this season. In fact, he hasn’t finished in the top 10 in such a tournament since last June. At Sentry, where he finished 25th at 15 under, McDonald says Thomas “looked lost with the driver in hand and the irons weren’t much better.” The 29-year-old is No. 180 in scoring average and No. 197 in strokes gained over his first two events, so he has some catching up to do.

On the other hand, San Diego native Schauffele comes in with a strong note. His final round was a scorching 10-under 62 Sunday at The American Express. The round included an albatross on the par-5 fifth hole, leaving him in a tie for third at 25 under par. The Olympic gold medalist was runner-up at Farmers 2021 and is a consistent scorer. He finished fifth on the tour in scoring average last season (69.462) and is third so far this year (69.268). Schauffele has seven tour wins, including three last season, when he was in the top 25 in 15 of 21 tournaments.
