Players' alma maters to benefit at Farmers


In tournament golf, one round is typically just part of the equation that determines how much a player earns. On Saturday at the Farmers Insurance Open, however, the third round determines which collegiate golf program benefits from University Day at Torrey Pines.

Tournament organizers are putting on University Day for the second consecutive year, encouraging fans and players alike to stride around Torrey Pines in the colors of their collegiate alma maters.

Among the players participating in the day-long competition, the low Saturday score will earn $20,000 to support their collegiate golf program. Second place will net $10,000 for their school. All participating players will have $500 donated in their name by Farmers Insurance to their college.

Last year, D.A. Points and Phil Mickelson both shot a 4-under 68 to split the $25,000 prize. Six players tied for third, earning $1,000 each for their schools.
