FedEx Cup points leader Jimmy Walker will be joined by reigning PGA Tour rookie of the year Jordan Spieth and, oh yeah, Tiger Woods when play begins Thursday at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

The group will tee off at 10:40 a.m. local time (1:40 p.m. Eastern), on the first hole of the Torrey Pines South Course. They’ll begin the second round at 9:30 a.m. (12:30 p.m. Eastern) on the tenth tee of the North Course.

Tiger, making his 2014 debut, is seeking his ninth win at Torrey Pines. He has won the Buick Invitational/Farmers Insurance Open seven times and he added a U.S. Open title (his last in a major championship) in 2008. He won there as a 15-year-old in the 1991 Junior World Golf Championships.

Jimmy Walker is coming off a victory earlier this month in the Sony Open and a win at the Frys.com Open in October.

Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Jason Day will tee off at 9:30 a.m. (12:30 p.m. Eastern) on the tenth tee of the North Course. Their second round is set for 10:30 a.m. (1:30 p.m. Eastern) on the first tee at the South Course.

I just saw the picture of Tiger and Alex Rodriguez watching a football game together.  They say "birds of a feather...."   Did Tiger introduce Alex to Dr. Tony Galea?

Good luck to Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines GC!


Frankly, playing two venues during the same event takes away from what I consider a "pure" golf event, however, what is is!


It will be interesting to learn how Tiger and Phil score at Torrey Pines GC.
