SAN DIEGO (AP) Tiger Woods is starting another year at Torrey Pines, this time with higher expectations.
Woods announced Wednesday that he will play in the Farmers Insurance Open next week. He has won the tournament seven times, and Torrey Pines is where he won the U.S. Open in 2008.
Woods tied for 23rd a year ago when no one - himself included - was sure what to expect. He was coming off a fourth back surgery, this one to fuse his lower spine. This will be his first PGA Tour event since he won the Tour Championship last September to cap off a comeback year.
LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) The timing couldn't be better for Justin Rose, or for the Desert Classic.
Rose played so much golf toward the end of last year that he wasn't quite ready to fly from his home in the Bahamas to Hawaii to start 2019 against a winners-only field at Kapalua. Instead, he decided to start at the Desert Classic, an event he has not played since 2010. Read More...
