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:

The defending champion this week is Jon Rahm 81/10 – with MarathonBet – who comes into this week after winning the CareerBuilders Championship in a play-off. Not many players can pull off back-to-back wins or defend their titles because of all the off course pressure and media/sponsors engagements they have to do, but if anyone call pull it off I think Rahm is the man.

I think for the last couple of years I and many other pundits have been saying it's a big year for Rickie Fowler 12/1 – with Bet365 – but this year really is. Rickie’s birthday is the same as mine and just having turned 29 at the end of last year, he will be looking to have a major championship to his name before he hits his 30th. Both Jordan Spith and Justin Thomas who are good friends of Fowler’s have won majors and Rickie will be itching to start this year with a bang.

Marc Leishman 25/1 – with Coral – finished last year in great form winning the BMW Championship and started the wraparound season with a runner-up finish and another Top 10 from his four starts. Marc also had Top 5 finish at the Australian PGA Championship and should come into this week confident and refreshed after his weeks break. Leishman has two runner-up finishes in this event and will be looking to finally nail down a victory over the Torrey Pines track.

My each-way tips:

Someone who has managed to get it over the line here is Brandt Snedeker 50/1 – with SportingBet – who has not only won this event twice but has two runner-up finishes as well. Brandt missed the cut last week in his first tournament of the year and I am sure he was just knocking the rust off, but he did manage a 67 in his final round at the CareerBuilders, improving his scoring each day and I expect to see the Tennessean challenging again this week.

Charles Howell lll 45/1 – with Bet365 – has been plodding along on this years wraparound season with one missed cut from his seven starts that includes four Top 20s one of which was a Top 5 finish at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Charles has three runner-up finishes at this event and four other Top 10s and normally performs well in the early season tour events.

My Outside tips:

Last years Top 15 finish was a vast improvement in this event for Francesco Molinari 92/1 – with BetDaq – who missed the cut the first time he teed it up at Torrey Pines. I feel Francesco is setting up his early season schedule to give himself a shot at this years Masters, he certainly has the long game, but it’s his putting that really needs to improve which we have seen signs of at the backend of last year and I think these are great odds for the Italian.

Longer odds:

If you are looking for longer odds then take a look at past champion Scott Stallings 200/1 – with Coral – who also has a runner-up finish here in the last four years.
As always good luck
