Farmers Insurance Open Dark Horse Picks 2023

Beyond the favorites, there are plenty of capable longshots and dark horses that could make a run at the leaderboard and come away with a higher finish or victory on Sunday. Check out the Farmers Insurance Open odds to win along with finishing position odds, tournament matchups and golf props on FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Max Homa (+2000)

Max Homa ranks No. 5 in Total Driving (distance + accuracy) this year. The Los Angeles native has played his best golf in California on these Poa Annua greens while earning three wins in the Golden State since 2021. Over that stretch, Homa ranks No. 1 in Strokes Gained: Total playing Poa courses and No. 1 in Putting. Add in many longer par 4's and Homa's top-10 ranking in Proximity from 200+ yards, and Homa looks right at home again at Torrey Pines.

2. Jason Day (+2000)

Jason Day's course credentials are also top-tier, along with his Scrambling stats which come in handy on the South Course's smaller greens. Day ranks tied for No. 2 in this field in Total Strokes Gained on the South Course with 25 rounds played. Strengths include Tee-to-Green, Off-the-Tee, Short Game and Putting stats (poa). Day has played much better the past four months and finished top-20 last week - his fifth top-25 finish in his last six starts. The 35-year-old Aussie has also enjoyed great success in this event, finishing T-3 in the Farmers last year, T-5 in 2019 and winning it in 2018.

3. Taylor Pendrith (+6500)

Taylor Pendrith ranks No. 5 on Tour in Total Driving and he had a solid debut in this tournament last year, finishing T-16. The 31-year-old Canadian is top-10 in driving distance. His accuracy is also plenty good and had him ranking top-40 in total driving last year. There are no concerns about last week's results, as Pendrith's elite driving skills should move him forward and help him challenge for a stronger finish at Torrey Pines.
