Farmers Insurance Open Round 2 Preview: Expect Jordan Spieth and Others on the North Course to Have Big Days

I’d like to start off with a special shoutout to Keegan Bradley, who kept me from being completely wrong on Thursday.

Instead, I was only half-wrong.

In both my weekly preview and during a segment on our daily Action Network show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, I suggested that it would be unwise for anyone making a First Round Leader wager for the Farmers Insurance Open to consider any player competing on Torrey Pines’ notoriously more difficult South Course on the opening day.

Silly me, I didn’t foresee Sebastian Cappelen turning into some combination of Ben Crenshaw and Steve Stricker.

Cappelen putted lights out on the South to post a strong 6-under 66, which held the outright lead for a while on Thursday afternoon. It wasn’t until Bradley birdied his penultimate hole on the North Course to ultimately share the overnight lead that I was given some level of reprieve from my earlier statement, at the very least having a player on the easier track split the money.
