Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Patrick Reed takes Farmers Insurance Open by five shots

Reed ($10,100; 125.5 DKFP) took home his ninth career title in commanding fashion, winning the Farmers Insurance Open by five shots at -14. Reed carded three birdies and an eagle against one bogey, parring every hole on the back nine up until the 18th to grind out the win at Pebble Beach with a round of 68. The American, who was 6.8% owned in the $1M Pitch + Putt contest, had several challengers for the lead throughout the day like Viktor Hovland ($9,300; 98.5 DKFP) and Tony Finau ($10,700; 96 DKFP) — but when it was all said and done, those two finished in a five-way tie for second place. Reed’s five-shot margin of victory puts less emphasis on the controversial drop he was awarded on the 10th hole on Saturday; he’d probably have won anyway. — Kenny Ducey

Sepp Straka goes low with a 65 on Sunday at Torrey Pines

Straka ($7,100; 76.5 DKFP) finished an up-and-down week tied for 32nd, but the 27-year-old Austrian finished with a great Sunday, carding seven birdies and no bogeys to shoot a 65. Unfortunately, he had a 77 on Saturday so started way back in the pack. Just one shot of Straka’s pace for best round of the day, Luke List ($6,800; 86.5 DKFP) and Francesco Molianri ($7,800; 78.5 DKFP) both climbed into the top-10 with rounds of six-under to finish T10. Unfortunately for those who paid up for them, Jon Rahm ($11,300; 85.5 DKFP) and Rory McIlroy ($11,000; 70.0) didn’t stage a charge, shooting even-par and one-over on Sunday, respectively. It was even worse, though, for Carlos Ortiz ($7,500; 78.5 DKFP), who tumbled from T1 to T29 with a six-over round on Sunday, filled with seven bogeys, a double-bogey and three birdies. — Zach Thompson

Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Carlos Ortiz goes low to grab share of lead heading into Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open

Ortiz ($7,500; 97.5 DKFP) started Saturday in 21st place and used the best round of the day to vault into a tie for first heading into the final day at the Farmers Insurance Open. He sits at -10 after carding a six-under 66 in the third round, complete with six birdies against just one bogey. Ortiz is tied with Patrick Reed ($10,100; 102.5 DKFP) for the lead, and has been semi-popular this week with 8.4% ownership in the $1M Pitch + Putt contest on DraftKings. The two next-best rounds of the day went to Xander Schauffele ($10,400; 58.5 DKFP) and Henrik Norlander ($6,900; 57 DKFP), who both sit in a tie for 12th after shooting rounds of 68. — Kenny Ducey

Patrick Reed remains atop leaderboard at Farmers Insurance Open after third round

It wasn’t without some controversy, but Reed ($10,100; 102.5 DKFP) did just enough on Saturday to hang on to his 36-hole lead at the Farmers Insurance Open and book a spot in the final grouping on Sunday. Reed managed to start his day five under par with three birdies and an eagle on the front nine before falling apart on the back nine with four bogeys. It really could have been five, but Reed was awarded a controversial drop on an embedded ball on the 10th, a hole which he went on to par. Reed brought the heat upon himself by deeming the ball embedded and moving it himself, but a rules official was present and said that Reed’s drop was legal. He’ll tee off at 1:20 p.m. ET on Sunday with his co-leader Carlos Ortiz ($7,500; 97.5 DKFP). — Kenny Ducey

Round 2 Recap — Friday

Victor Hovland leads after second round of Farmers Insurance Open

After a brief weather delay, the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open is in the books. Hovland ($9,300) is leading the field at nine-under-par after shooting a 65 on Friday. He leads a group of seven players that are tied for second at eight-under-par, and that are some big names in that group: Jon Rahm ($11,300), Adam Scott ($8,300), Tony Finau ($10,700), Ryan Palmer ($8,400), Lanto Griffin ($7,400) and Patrick Reed ($10,100). That should set up an exciting weekend at Torrey Pines. Rahm is the betting favorite at +335 on DraftKings Sportsbook, but Finau and Hovland aren’t far behind at +550. — Matt LaMarca

Harris English, Scottie Scheffler and Brooks Koepka headline missed cuts at Farmers Open

After shooting a five-over-par round at the South Course of Torrey Pines on Thursday, English ($9,800) couldn’t capitalize at the easier North Course, posting an even-par 72 on Friday. The 31-year-old was one of the most popular golfers of the week, ranking 11th in ownership in the $1 Million Pitch and Putt tournament on DraftKings. Scheffler ($9,000) found himself at the South Course on Friday and shot a seven-over-par 79, placing him one stroke outside of the cutline. As for Koepka ($9,400), the four-time major winner is really struggling so far this season, and this missed weekend at the Farmers is his third in a row. Lastly, Si Woo Kim ($8,900), who just won The American Express a week ago, also failed to stay inside the cutline by one shot. — Alex Hunter

Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Alex Noren tied for lead after first round at Farmers Insurance Open

Searching for his first career PGA Tour victory, Noren ($7,400: 63 DKFP) shot a 64 (-8) in the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open to place him in a tie with Patrick Reed ($10,100: 65 DKFP) atop the leaderboard. Noren began with a birdie right out of the gate on the 10th hole, then birdied the 14th hole. On hole 17, he knocked in an eagle before bogeying the next hole. He had a clean round on the back nine, notching birdies on holes 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. Noren had played in this tournament twice, finishing 107th in 2018 and 2nd in 2017. — Stan Son

Patrick Reed, Scottie Scheffler off to hot starts at Farmers Insurance Open

Reed ($10,100; 65 DKFP) sits in a tie for first, and Scheffler ($9,000; 53 DKFP) is alone in third after one round at the Farmers Insurance Open. Reed went off at 6.8% ownership in the $1M Pitch contest, shooting a bogey-free round of 64 to sit atop the leaderboard at -8 along with Alex Noren ($7,400; 63 DKFP). He poured in eight birdies and earned the bonus for sinking three in a row, while Scheffler had five birdies, an eagle and a birdie run of his own. Scheffler, who was a little more popular at 7.3% ownership, currently holds +1200 odds to win the tournament on DraftKings Sportsbook, a couple spots behind Reed (+600). — Kenny Ducey
