Golf is a high variance game: Anyone can win at any time. This weeks social poll tested our followers ability to predict the winner of this past weekend’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
We asked who they thought would win: One of the two favorites Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy. We also gave them the option to write in a potential winner from the field. Judging from these results: We would not recommend that our audience bet on golf. A staggering 64.5% of our audience chose Tiger Woods compared to just 35.5% for Rory McIllroy. However, 100% of respondents were wrong. Ouch.
Australian Marc Leishman was persistent and came from 4 shots back to earn his 5th PGA tour win, his first since 2018 CIMB Classic in Malaysia. His putting Sunday was out of this world: Gaining birides on the first, second, fourth, sixth, eighth, 11th and 13th holes. It was his first victory at Torrey Pines.
