    Top-ranked Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas made the birdies they needed to keep pace on the easier North Course at Torrey Pines on Thursday and shared the lead with hard-charging Adam Schenk after two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open. Schenk made eight straight birdies to shoot a career-low, 10-under 62, also on the North Course, and joined Rahm (65) and Thomas (63) at 13-under 131. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The 30-year-old Schenk, who grew up on an Indiana sod farm, started his impressive run of birdies on the fourth hole and ended it on No. 11. He also birdied Nos. 16 and 17 in his bogey-free round. All three leaders opened Wednesday on the South Course, where Rahm won the U.S. Open last year for his first major. Rahm also got his first PGA Tour victory in 2017 at Torrey Pines, a municipal facility on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The final two rounds will be played on the South Course. Schenk recorded the longest consecutive birdies streak at this tournament since 2003. "I...
    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Top-ranked Jon Rahm closed with an eagle on the tougher South Course at Torrey Pines for a 6-under 66 on Wednesday, trailing leader Billy Horschel by three strokes after the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Horschel shot a bogey-free 9-under 63 on the North Course and led Michael Thompson by one stroke. Of the 30 players who shot 67 or better, 26 played the North. Rahm’s was the best score on the South by one over Luke List, Peter Malnati and Cameron Tringale. The players switch courses Thursday and play the final two rounds on the South. Taking advantage of the North’s shorter distances and more forgiving rough, Horschel made five birdies on the front nine, highlighted by a 25-foot putt on the par-4 second hole. The 35-year-old from Florida is seeking his first non-match play victory on the PGA Tour since April 2018. “I told my caddie, ‘Let’s just go out there, no expectations, and just enjoy,’” Horschel said. “And I think we did a really good job of that.

    Breaking down our PGA Tour expert picks and best bets for the Farmers Insurance Open as Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and more hit Torrey Pines this week. Torrey Pines will be the setting for the PGA Tour this week as many of the world’s best golfers head to La Jolla and the course that hosted the US Open last year for the Farmers Insurance Open. Patrick Reed will be looking to defend his (controversial) title from last year. Of course, anyone who’s been watching the polarizing Reed of late won’t be betting on that. Instead, we’re looking at a course that’s long at over 7,600 yards, meaning it requires distance both off the tee but also with mid-to-long irons for the second shots at what can be a difficult golf course, even at the Farmers Insurance Open and not a major championship. This field is loaded with six of the top 10 ranked players in the world playing, highlighted by Jon Rahm (+700), Justin Thomas (+1200), Bryson DeChambeau (+2000) and many, many more. So where do we put our investments,...
    SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KABC) -- This is really the stuff of nightmares. A rare, monstrous-looking fish recently washed ashore in San Diego.It's called the Pacific footballfish, and it's one of the larger anglerfish species.Jay Beiler encountered the fish on Nov. 13 when it washed up at Torrey Pines State Beach."At first I thought it was a - like a jellyfish or something, and then I went and looked at it a little more carefully, and some other people were gathered around it too, and then I saw that it was this very unusual fish...It's the stuff of nightmares - mouth almost looked bloody! I'd say it was nearly a foot long," Beiler told local media, according to Storyful.It is usually found 2,000 to 3,000 feet beneath the sea, where sunlight doesn't penetrate, according to the California Academy of Sciences. The fish use a fleshy, bioluminescent lure from their heads to attract prey.The species has only been seen a few times in California - including Orange County, where it washed up near Crystal Cove State Park in Newport Beach in May.MORE...

    Two career-changing putts for Jon Rahm brought two trophies Sunday. He cradled his 3-month-old son, Kepa, as he walked off the 18th green at Torrey Pines on Father’s Day. And then he collected the silver U.S. Open trophy after a performance filled with passion and absent of blunders that wiped out everyone else. Rahm made a bending 25-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to catch Louis Oosthuizen. He buried another curling, left-to-right birdie putt from 18 feet on the final hole for a 4-under 67 and a one-shot victory. The 26-year-old Rahm became the first Spaniard to win the U.S. Open, finally getting the major prize to go along with his enormous talent. His victory also returned him to No. 1 in the world. On a back nine filled with double bogeys by so many contenders and a shocking meltdown by defending champion Bryson DeChambeau, Oosthuizen was the last to fall. Trailing by one shot, Oosthuizen drove into the canyon left of the 17th fairway for a bogey that left him two shots behind, and then he missed the...
    Mark it up as a victory for sweet atonement and, like a couple of those legendary Spaniards before him, a priceless habit of holing the putts that matter. Robbed of a victory in his last event after testing positive for Covid-19 when leading by six on the eve of the final round, Jon Rahm has never felt better than he did after claiming the 121st US Open in marvellous fashion on Sunday night. One shot off the lead with two holes to play, he birdied both the closing holes, first from 20ft at the 17th and then a shade under that to send the crowd wild at the 18th and complete a 67, the lowest score all week.  Jon Rahm celebrates making his second eagle putt in a row on the 18th green at Torrey Pines Louis Oosthuizen led for much of the final round until Rahm's late surge saw him leapfrogged RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Tommy Fleetwood is still carrying the torch for Olympic...

    A fan storms the course at the 13th hole at the 2021 US Open.. @beemerpga / Instagram A fan stormed the course at the US Open at Torrey Pines on Sunday. The incident happened on the 13th fairway, with the fan getting in a few swings before getting tackled by security. We do not condone storming the course at a golf major, but this fan's form looked pretty solid. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Sunday at the US Open is always an eventful day of golf. As the best players in the world attempted to tame the greens of Torrey Pines, one fan decided that he wanted in on the action. Just as Bryson DeChambeau was setting up to play his second shot out of the rough at No. 13, the fan stormed into the fairway with a club and two golf balls in hand. Thankfully, that's not a metaphor. The fan took two swings, showing solid form, before security surrounded him and forced evasive action. Eventually, a golf cart with more security made its way...

    Rory Mcilroy earned himself a welcome lie-in - and the chance to spend more time dreaming about how his Major championship drought could soon be over, thanks to a crucial final hole birdie. McIlroy was one of the last men to finish as darkness descended at Torrey Pines, after the first round of the US Open was delayed by ninety minutes because of thick fog. 2McIlroy is looking to end his Major championship droughtCredit: AP 2McIlroy was one of the last men to finish at Torrey PinesCredit: REUTERS Thirty six players were not so lucky, including joint leader Louis Oosthuizen, and they will require an early alarm call to return and finish their opening rounds. McIlroy walked off the 18th with his smile beaming through the gloom - finishing was a relief, finishing by nailing an eight footer to secure a one under par 70 was a real tonic. That was three shots better than his average first round score in the seven years since he won the last of his four Major titles at the 2014 USPGA. And seeing...
    Phil Mickelson backed off his shot and asked for quiet after a phone went off in the gallery. Exasperated, he stepped back a second time when it happened again. A third ding and Lefty couldn't take it anymore. "Seriously? Can we get someone to help him?" he said. Finally able to hit in silence, Mickelson sent the shot into the bushes way left, leading to a bogey. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I don’t understand why you just can’t turn that little button on the side into silent," he said. Inconsiderate fans weren't Mickelson's only problem Thursday at beastly Torrey Pines. Unable to get many good looks at birdie, Mickelson had three bogeys in his first six holes and two more late to shoot a 4-over 75 in the opening round. That leaves him eight shots behind early leader Russell Henley in his bid to win his first U.S. Open and complete the career grand slam. "I was fighting hard throughout the round," Mickelson said. "I wasn’t really getting anything going and I fought really hard, and...

    Phil Mickelson is gunning for his first U.S. Open trophy at Torrey Pines, coming off a wave of confidence, after becoming the oldest major winner at the PGA Championship. It’s hard to believe Phil Mickelson has never won a U.S. Open trophy. The tournament at Torrey Pines takes place in his hometown of San Diego, CA. He grew up on the course, but the U.S. Open — which has been played at the Torrey Pines Golf Course since 2008 — remains the one major Lefty doesn’t own. With the win at Kiawah Island, Mickelson has also proven that the results of the work ethic he’s been putting in (and extreme, but effective diet) have kicked in at just the right moment. He’s also been putting in the extra effort at Torrey Pines as well, preparing at the course that’s worked against him so many times. “It’s a unique opportunity because I’ve never won a U.S. Open,’’ Mickelson said earlier this week. “It’s in my backyard. I have a chance to prepare properly, and I wanted to put in the right...
    One of Tiger Woods’ most iconic shots was commemorated Wednesday.

This has been a busy year for Rahm off the course, as he welcomed his first child this spring. On the course, he has not met his usual high standards. Nevertheless, he has posted three top-five performances and seven top 10s. He also appears to be peaking at the right time with his game. A Saturday 64 two weekends ago gave him a six-stroke lead over a field that had 11 of the top 15 players in the world participating at the Memorial Tournament. Then, the news of the positive COVID-19 test came alongside the 18th green in front of a national television audience, and he was forced to withdraw. Torrey Pines...
    Garrick Higgo, U.S. Open 2021. Mandatory Credit: David Yeazell-USA TODAY Sports The 2021 U.S. Open is heading back to Torrey Pines and, while we look at the betting odds, these five sleepers and dark horses could win this week.  While the U.S. Open has only been played at Torrey Pines once before back in 2008, it’s already in the lore of the golfing world for the result it produced — namely, an iconic Tiger Woods victory. Now, the major championship circuit circles back to the venue in 2021 in hopes that the same type of drama can deliver once again. The favorites are obviously dominating the conversation when it comes to the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. Jon Rahm returns from his COVID-19 absence that robbed him of a victory at the Memorial and will tee it up at a place where he’s had a ton of success during the PGA Tour season. Moreover, we’ll be looking for the likes of Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa and so on to pop up with a major on the...
    US Open bosses are planning to have a bit of fun with the Bryson Dechambeau-Brooks Koepka feud - by sending them out together at Torrey Pines. And they could also add Phil Mickelson to complete the three-ball later this month, and act as a referee! 3Brooks Koepka was caught rolling his yes as Bryson DeChambeau walked past 3DeChambeau's pace of playing golf has been criticised by Brooks Koepka The simmering dislike between DeChambeau and Koepka surfaced at the USPGA Championship, where Mickelson, 50, became the oldest Major champion of all time. A leaked video of Koepka rolling his eyes theatrically as DeChambeau walked past him during an interview, and making a sarcastic comment, quickly went viral. Koepka then muttered: “I’ve f***ing lost my train of thought hearing that bulls**t.”  He had another dig when it was announced DeChambeau would partner quarterback Aaron Rodgers against Mickelson and another NFL star, Tom Brady, in a charity match. Koepka tweeted: “Sorry bro AaronRodgers12”, with DeChambeau quickly replying: “@BKoepka It’s nice to be living rent free inside your head!”. Mickelson, joined in with a...
