Tiger makes it perfectly clear at foggy Torrey

  • Print

EVERYTHING became perfectly clear Sunday at Torrey Pines. Tiger Woods was on his game and headed toward yet another win.

Woods seized control in the fog-delayed Farmers Insurance Open with a strong driving performance that carried him to a 3-under 69 and a four-shot lead after the third round. Even when he got a little wild off the tee late in the chilly afternoon of the fourth round, he still made birdies to stretch his lead to six shots when play was suspended by darkness.

Woods has 11 holes left to play when the round resumes today.

"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."

Thick fog washed out all of Saturday, forcing players to go from sunrise to sunset Sunday. They finished the third round, took about 30 minutes for lunch and went right back onto the golf course. CBS Sports wants to televise the conclusion -- no surprise with Woods in the lead -- so the round will not resume until 1 p.m.

Woods was at 17-under par for the tournament.

Defending champion Brandt Snedeker was 4 under through 13 holes of the final round and he was not making up much ground on Woods. Snedeker was at 11 under, along with Nick Watney, who was through eight holes.

Woods finished 54 holes at 14-under 202 and was four shots ahead of rookie Brad Fritsch, from Ottawa. It was the 16th time in his PGA Tour career Woods had a 54-hole lead of at least four shots.

Woods has won seven times at Torrey Pines as a pro, including a U.S. Open, and another win Monday would give him the most wins on any course. He also has seven wins at Bay Hill and Firestone. Woods attributed his lead to "the whole package."

"I've driven the ball well, I've hit my irons well, and I've chipped and putted well," he said.
