Jason Day's win in the Farmers Insurance Open in 2015 stared a virtuoso season for the 28-year-old. Day is set to return to defend his title at Torrey Pines -- one of golf's most iconic and majestic settings -- as long as he's well enough.
Day withdrew from Wednesday's pro-am with the flu and his status for Thursday's first round remains uncertain.
If Day cannot compete, the favorite may become Rickie Fowler, coming off a win last week in Abu Dhabi on the European Tour against a field featuring Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson.
Phil Mickleson also hopes to build on some momentum after finishing 21-under to finish T3 at the CareerBuilder Challenge.
