SAN DIEGO -- Tiger Woods is going to have to wait to pursue a seventh win at Torrey Pines.
Three players completed one hole Saturday before fog wiped out virtually the entire day at the Farmers insurance Open. Players are to resume the round Sunday morning and play as long as daylight allows, and then finish Monday.
Woods, who had a two-shot lead over Billy Horschel, never came to the golf course.
Players spent most of the day hitting shots on the range that they couldn't see land. The only golf that was played was after a three-hour delay in the morning.
Vonn bests Maze
MARIBOR, Slovenia -- Lindsey Vonn showed she can beat Tina Maze in the Slovenian's best discipline and even on her home snow.
While it may be too late to challenge her biggest rival for the overall World Cup title, Vonn is again looking like Maze's biggest challenger at next month's world championships.
The American proved that she has fully recovered from a recent illness by winning a World Cup giant slalom in Maribor on Saturday, besting Maze in her favourite event and on her home hill.
Vonn was third behind Maze after the first run but put overcame several errors in the second to put down the fastest time and create a margin that Maze couldn't bridge. Vonn won in 2 minutes, 22.2 seconds for her first GS victory since March last year -- and first podium finish at all in what is traditionally her weakest event.
Maze was looking to win her home race for the third time and led after a near-perfect first run, but a poor start to the second cost her valuable time and she finished 0.08 seconds behind Vonn.
'I was the real deal'
CHICAGO -- Retired Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas feels even better about his career after watching steroids-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens fail to gain entry to the Hall of Fame.
"I think I've done enough to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer," he said Saturday at the team's fan convention.
"Watching all the nonsense unfold and not really knowing what was going on, it makes me much more proud of my career," he said. "I competed in that era. I played at a high level in that era. There are a lot of great players, but as it unfolds, a lot of it was not the real deal. I know 100 per cent I was the real deal."
Bonds, Sosa and Clemens were denied in their first year of eligibility amid suspicions by some voters that their accomplishments were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs.
