PGA Tour Brunch | Farmers Wrap-Up
@PGATourBrunch Recaps the Farmers and Looks Ahead to Pebble Beach
TORREY PINES - With darkness setting in and nearly two hours passing since he finished his round before regulation play ended at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, Luke List defeated Will Zalatoris on the first hole of sudden death with a tap-in birdie at the par-5 18th. It was List’s first career PGA Tour victory.
The playoff at the Farmers Insurance Open marked the second playoff of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season (Hideki Matsuyama defeated Russell Henley after one hole at the Sony Open in Hawaii). It also marked the 18th playoff in the Torrey Pines-based event history, the first since Jason Day defeated Alex Noren and Ryan Palmer in 2018.
Zalatoris was seeking his first PGA Tour title in his 40th start. Torrey Pines was the site of his first professional start on Tour.
In his bid to become the first player to successfully defend a Farmers Insurance Open title since Tiger Woods in 2008, Patrick Reed finished T-46 at 5-under (283).

On This Day in Golf History:
January 30, 2011 - With his caddie Jim “Bones’ MacKay tending the pin on the 18th hole, Phil Mickelson nearly holed a 72-yard eagle chip shot that would’ve tied Bubba Watson and forced a playoff at the Farmers Insurance Open. Mickelson’s chip near fell to the hole on a fly, but settled three feet away. He made the birdie putt but lost to Watson by one stroke. - Courtesy of Randy Walker, Author of On This Day in Golf History, available via Amazon.com and by clicking HERE
