Tiger Woods Commits To Play Torrey Pines
by Harry Cummins
The Legend is returning to the site where he launched his 2018 fairy tale golfing comeback last January after being sidelined by four back surgeries.
Tiger Woods, a 7-time winner of the Farmers Insurance Open, will again play in the annual PGA tournament which begins next week at Torrey Pines Golf Course in picturesque La Jolla, California. Woods first win at the Farmers came 20 years ago.
Woods last PGA appearance was the Tour Championship in September, where he captured his 80th career tournament win and first in 5 years, putting him just two shy of Sam Snead's all-time record. Woods comeback year included seven top ten finishes and more than 5 million in prize money. He is currently ranked number 12 in the world.
Want a winter break? General Admission Adult Grounds tickets start at $60 and include one of the best cliff-top ocean views in the world and an opportunity to take a stroll along side a golfing legend.
Securing lodging, however, in the charming seaside village of La Jolla may be akin to an unplayable lie. If you get lucky, book a few nights at the historic La Valencia Hotel and thank me later.
