The 2022 Farmers Insurance Open is all set to begin on 26th January at Torrey Pines. Meanwhile, this is the first event of the year, with almost a full field, and we will see players like Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and others. However, only a few players like Collin Morikawa, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods won’t be a part of the field.
Notably, Farmers Insurance Open is one of the oldest and most prominent events on the PGA Tour. Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have won this event multiple times. So let us find out who has won this event more often between Tiger and Phil.
Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson – who has the most Farmers Insurance Open wins?
Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have both dominated the Farmers Insurance Open in their careers so far. Both these golfers have multiple wins, but who has the most wins? If we look at the left-hander Phil Mickelson, he has won this event thrice in his career so far. He won this event for the first time in 1993, then in 2000 and 2001.
Moreover, when it comes to Tiger Woods, he easily surpasses Phil as he has won the Farmers Insurance Open seven times in his career. He won the trophy in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2013. Hence, Tiger Woods is clearly ahead of Phil Mickelson on this count.
Meanwhile, this year, Phil is competing while Tiger won’t be a part of the field as Woods is currently still recovering from the solo car crash that occurred in February 2021. And even though he has almost recovered well, Tiger still needs a bit of strength in his right leg as he struggles sometimes while walking.
Hence, Phil Mickelson has a great chance this week of reducing the margin between himself and Woods. If Phil manages to win the trophy this week, then he will have four wins in total.
