Torrey Pines Golf Club has been pretty darn good to Tiger Woods in the past, so it comes as no surprise that he plans to make his 2014 PGA TOUR debut there in two weeks.
Tournament officials announced Monday that Woods will defend his Farmers Insurance Open title Jan. 23-26. The event was the first of five he won last year -- and his victory there made Woods the first player in TOUR history to win on the same course eight times.
Woods has won the Farmers Insurance Open seven times and captured the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, as well.
According to his website, Phil Mickelson, who lives in San Diego, will also make his first PGA TOUR start of 2014 at the Farmers Insurance Open. He is a three-time champion at Torrey Pines and has been runner-up in the Famers Insurance Open twice.
