What to watch as PGA Tour moves to Torrey Pines
Jon Rahm will attempt to become the first PGA Tour player to win in three consecutive starts since 2017 when he tees it up on Wednesday at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines outside San Diego.
How rare would his feat be?
According to Justin Ray, head of content for Twenty First Group, a player has won three straight PGA Tour starts 18 times since 1997 -- and Tiger Woods did it in all but four of those instances.
Rahm, who started the season with wins at the Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express, would be the first player to win in three consecutive PGA Tour starts since Dustin Johnson did it at the Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in early 2017. Rory McIlroy did it in 2014 and Woods last did it in 2008.
According to Ray's research, Woods won 58.3% of the time when he had a chance to win his third straight start. Everyone else had a 10.5% success rate.
