Farmers Insurance Open Tips: JB Holmes

Farmers Insurance Open Tips: JB Holmes

Finished in the top-6 in the last two editions of the Farmers Insurance Open and normally plays during the West Coast Swing.

JB Holmes was last sighted finishing 11th at the Hero Challenge in December but he should be ready to go because Torrey Pines is one of his favourite courses.

Holmes has played in every Farmers Insurance Open since 2006 and boasts an impressive record making 8/11 cuts and finishing in the top-6 for the past two seasons.

The 34-year-old’s length off the tee is a huge asset and it doesn’t matter that he misses plenty of fairways because everyone will this week.

Comfortable on Poa Annua greens and normally at his best during the West Coast Swing, I expect another strong showing despite his extended break.

At 50/1 he is a he is a good each-way bet with Sky Bet going the extra place; ¼ odds for a top-6 finish.
