PGA Golf Playing Field for the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open, Tiger Woods playing

The 2017 Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from January 26-29, 2017, at the Torrey Pines Golf Course owned by and located in San Diego, California. Here is a list of the playing field of PGA golfers playing in the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open.



The big news for the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open is that Tiger Woods is in the playing field and will be playing this week. The 2017 Farmers Insurance Open will be the first regular PGA golf tournament Tiger Woods has played in since 2015. 

Tiger Woods did play in the Hero World Challenge in December and he played well in the event he hosts but the field is limited to just 16 players in that event and there is no cut. It's pretty easy to understand why Tiger Woods is making his comeback in the Farmers Insurance Open as he's won this tournament a record 7 times (1999, 2003, 2005-08, 2013).

Top ranked players joining Tiger Woods in the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open include 2015 winner Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Paul Casey, Brooks Koepka, three-time winner of this event Phil Mickelson, Jimmy Walker and Emiliano Grillo. All those players are ranked in the top 25 in the world.

Top 50 ranked players in the playing field for the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open include defending champion and two-time winner of this event Brandt Snedeker, Louis Oosthuizen, J.B. Holmes, Daniel Berger, Francesco Molinari, Kevin Chappell, Gary Woodland, Shane Lowry and Beong Hun An.

Also playing are golf major winners not included above like Keegan Bradley, Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Retief Goosen, Padraig Harrington and Geoff Oglivy. Previous winners of the Farmers Insurance Open in the playing field not included above include Scott Stallings (2014), Ben Crane (2010) and Nick Watney (2009).

Tiger Woods did not pick an easy spot to return to regular PGA Tournament action as the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open playing field is loaded with top players. So in addition to seeing how well Tiger plays this week the Farmers Insurance Open is well worth watching do to the great numbers of top ranked players in the event this week.

  2. This life insurance Chico presents by far the most flexibility, but it comes with the most danger. You can vary your premium payments and choose how your premiums and cash value are invested. https://smartmedigapplans.com/
