The Farmers Insurance Open is a PGA Tour professional golf tournament played in the San Diego, California area in the early part of the Tour season, known as the "West Coast Swing." The tournament was noted for having singer-actor Andy Williams as a celebrity host from 1968 to 1988. The tournament originated as the San Diego Open and used that name in its title through 1985. Shearson Lehman Brothers were title sponsors from 1985 to 1992. Buick was the main tournament sponsor from 1992 to 2009. Farmers Insurance Group is the main sponsor as of 2010.
