Four other top-10 players -- Xander Schauffele, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Will Zalatoris -- will join the red-hot Rahm in the Farmers Insurance Open 2023 field. The Spaniard won last week's American Express for his fourth victory in his past five outings worldwide.     

Rahm is the 4-1 favorite in the latest 2023 Farmers Insurance Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook, followed by Schauffele (12-1), Tony Finau (12-1) and Morikawa (12-1). Thomas (13-1) and Zalatoris (14-1) also are among the top contenders in the Farmers Insurance Open 2023 field.
