The South course at Torrey Pines was designed by William F Bell and opened for play in 1957. Rees Jones was commissioned to undertake a redesign in 2001 so the course would be ready for the 2008 US Open Championship. Who could forget that dramatic Championship which ended with Tiger Woods beating Rocco Mediate on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff (after an 18 hole play off) and with a fractured bone in one leg.

Torrey Pines sits on the coastal cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla south of Torrey Pines State Reserve. Tight fairways, lush rough, pine trees, strategic bunkering and deep ravines are just some of the challenges ahead. Throw in the changing weather conditions, when fog, wind and rain come into play, they can often sweep in on this seaside layout. But you have a course that offers even the best golfers in the world a tough examination of their skills, both physically and mentally. Saying that I have shot a 57 on this course, but then that was on my PSP!

The complex takes its name from the indigenous Torrey Pine which is native to the area. The course is maintained by the City of San Diego and is open to the public and has enjoyed numerous awards, included amongst them is Golf Magazine's "Top 500 Holes in the World", 2000 (Par 4, 12th Hole) and Golf Digest Magazine's "America's 100 Greatest Public Access Golf Courses", 2005-2006.

My tips to win:

Although Hideki Matsuyama 14/1 – with Bet365 – missed the cut here twice in the last two years, along with Justin Thomas he is the man in form coming into this week with a record of two wins, two runners-up and a sixth place finish from five starts on the wraparound season. Hideki did make the Top 20 the first time he teed it up here and on current form I can see him finally challenging at Torrey Pines this week.

This weeks defending champion is Brandt Snedeker 30/1 – with BetFred – who has two wins, two runner-up finishes and a couple of Top 10s here so he obviously enjoys playing the Torrey Pines courses. Brandt missed the cut at the Sony Open two weeks ago but I expect him to be challenging again this week.

My each-way tips

As you can see I have gone for three each-way tips this week and only two players to win mainly because a lot of the favourites don’t have great records here unlike JB Holmes 50/1 – with Ladbrokes – who was runner-up here two years ago and followed that up with a sixth place finish last year. This is JBs first start of the year but he will be looking forward to this week and I think these are great odds.

Martin Laird 66/1 – with PaddyPower – has two Top 10 finishes here over the last two years, he did struggle with the Torrey Pines courses for a few years but seems to have grown into them. Martin comes into this week on the back of three Top 15 finishes from four starts this season and he will be looking forward to this week after his Top 10 at last weeks CareerBuilder Challenge

A player I have tipped a couple of times so far this year is Pat Perez 80/1 – with SportingBet – who comes into this week on the back of a win and two Top 10 finishes – one of which was a third place at the SBS Tournament of Champions – from five starts so far this season. Up until the last two years Pat hadn’t been outside the Top 25 here since 2011 and had a runner-up finish in that run and I think these are great odds for someone who comes into this week with his golf game in good shape.

My outside tips:

I know a few of you have asked me to concentrate on the outside bets and there are a few good ones this week. First up is Scott Stallings 90/1 – with Bet365 – who was a past champion here three years ago and defended his title with a runner-up and had another Top 25 last year and comes into this week on the back of a Top 10 at last weeks CareerBuilder Challenge. Bud Cauley 175/1 – with Bet365 – and what great odds those are for someone who had a Top 5 last week and has two Top 25 finishes here and lastly Seamus Power 250/1 – with BetVictor – who has been playing some solid golf lately knocking on the door of his first Top 25 finish on the PGA Tour which he achieved last week.

As always good luck
