Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines to be Played Without Fans
Not much of a surprise, but the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open will be played without fans this coming January, the tournament announced on Monday.
“We have been working closely with the PGA Tour as well as the county and city of San Diego in our planning. The safety and well-being of everyone affiliated with the Farmers Insurance Open and our community remains our top priority. While we will certainly miss the energy our fans bring to Torrey, we remain focused on delivering a PGA Tour competition that showcases the best players in the game set against the backdrop of one of the most storied courses in the world,” said Marty Gorsich, CEO of the Century Club, a non-profit organization that operates the event.
The event is scheduled to take place from January 28 to January 31 at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California.
The PGA Tour has played the majority of the season without fans on site.
However, according to Golf Channel, a limited number of fans will be allowed for the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Maui, Hawaii from January 7-10.
