Tiger Woods in control at Torrey Pines

Final round to be completed today

 

SAN DIEGO — Due to the fog that wiped out an entire day of golf, the Farmers Insurance Open was never going to end on Sunday.
 
Tiger Woods just made it look as if it was over.
 
Hands thrust in the pockets of his rain pants, Woods walked off Torrey Pines in the chill of twilight with a six-shot lead and only 11 more holes standing in the way of winning on the public course along the Pacific Ocean for the eighth time in his pro career.
 
He drove the ball with superb control in the third round on his way to a 3-under 69 to build a four-shot lead after three rounds. He lost control with his driver in the fourth round and still managed three birdies in seven holes.
 
“All we can do tomorrow is go out and try to make him think about it a little bit and see what happens,” said Nick Watney, one of two former winners at Torrey Pines who faced the tough task of trying to make up six shots on Woods.
 
The other was defending champion Brandt Snedeker.
 
“I’ve got a guy at the top of the leaderboard that doesn’t like giving up leads,” Snedeker said. “So I have to go catch him.”
 
Woods was at 17-under par for the tournament and will resume his round on the par-3 eighth hole. CBS Sports wants to televise the Monday finish — no surprise with Woods in the lead — so play won’t start until 2 p.m. EST.
 
Snedeker played 13 holes of the final round. Watney played eight holes. Both were at 11-under par.
 
Woods played 25 holes. He started with a two-shot lead and tripled it before darkness suspended the final round.
 
“It was a long day ... and I played well today,” Woods said. “Overall, I’m very pleased that I was able to build on my lead.”
