Fantasy: Who to pick at Torrey ... besides Tiger
GolfChannel.com senior writer Rex Hoggard joins Lisa Cornwell to make their fantasy picks for the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open. Play alongside our experts by logging onto golfchannel.com/fantasyGroup 1. It's January over at Torrey Pines. It has to be Tiger Woods . When you think about 8 career victories as a professional at Southern California municipal course, 7 Farmers Insurance Opens, 1 US Open , historic US Open in 2008. And if you look at his history, he always gets off to a fast start each and every year. Group 4, I saw the look on your face, when Davis Love III came up. And I know everyone's kind of expecting him to go to the Champions Tour quietly. But I had the chance to talk with him late last year; he has no interest in playing the Champions Tour . When you look at what he's done at Torrey Pines of the course of his career, he has the tri-effect on a win, a place in the shelves. So give me DL III. -I like him. I like all of those. I'm gonna go Group 1 also, Tiger Woods . How do you not like a guy who's won 8 times in 14 starts at Torrey Pines? When you feel it, you feel it. And Tiger Woods feels it at Torrey Ponds. Plus, one of the best iron players ever. Perhaps the best iron player ever. Group 2, I'm gonna go with Bill Haas . 4 consecutive rounds under 67 at Humana, tied for 6th finished, 18 of his last 20 rounds at Torrey Pines have been under par. Plus, I love his golf swing. Nobody loves at the right side better than Bill Haas . -And he's playing great. 2 of his last 3 finishes, Top 10. -You got it. All right. You wanna be a part
Major quest: Is time running out for Tiger?
GolfChannel.com senior writer Rex Hoggard joins Lisa Cornwell to discuss Tiger Woods and the importance of 2014 in Woods’ quest to win 18 (or more) major titles.Rex Hoggard. Rex, as we get ready for the Farmers Insurance Open, Tiger Woods making his 2014 debut, how important is it for him to get off to a hot start here leading up to his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus these 18 majors? -I think for Tiger it's always important to get off to a fair start. When you look at what he's done in his season opening events, 14 top ten in his career, seven wins, his average finish in his opening events is a third. When you put in the broader context of how this is gonna impact his major run to Jack Nicklaus , 18 majors. I feel like we were just sitting here last year having this conversation. I don't really think it's that importantthink this is a different era. Everyone seems to want to put Tiger Woods on a clock and say, "Well, he's got to get that 18 measure by the time he's 46 years old like Jack Nicklaus did." I don't believe that. I believe guys today are in better shape and they're focused longer. You look at some of the players that are playing on a PGA Tour so late in their careers, Vijay Singh of course is one, [unk]. I mean there are so many guys who have made careers in their 40s. I think Tiger Woods still has plenty of time on the clock if-huge if, if he can maintain his health which he was able to do last year which I think is the most encouraging thing for him. -And the swing changes he's made seem to be setting him up, longevity out on tour. Thanks for joining us, more on Tiger Woods on GolfChannel.com.

Fantasy: Pick four for the Phoenix Open
GolfChannel.com senior writer Jason Sobel joins Lisa Cornwell to make their fantasy picks for the 2014 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Play alongside our experts by logging onto www.golfchannel.com/fantasySobel. Jason, who do you like this week in Phoenix? -Really like Bill Haas played well into the weekend in Phoenix last year, now wasn't going to be Phil Mickelson who had started off with the 60 and never relinquished that going wire to wire, but Bill Haas played some really inspired golf on this course last year and he's really one of the more underrated players out there. Bill Haas has been a good player for a long time now, and I expect him to start piling up more wins as he continues into his career now. And the second I really like, Ryan Moore . I spoke with him a few days ago, he has lost about 10 or 15 pounds since last August, started working out a little more vigorously in the gym, and his game has improved since then. He won the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, and I expect him with some ties to the Phoenix area; some family that lives in the area to have a really good week. - Bill Haas is always fun to watch. Great player. A couple of guys I'm watching; Hunter Mahan, one of my favorite swings on the PGA Tour . The guys hits a lot of fairways, a lot of greens, he's a solid putter. A good warm-up at Farmers. So, I
