Tiger in total control at Torrey Pines
Last updated: 28th January 2013
Tiger Woods continued to strengthen his hold on the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday, opening up a six strokes lead after seven holes of the final round on the Torrey Pines course where he has won seven times before.
Approaching the 75th PGA Tour win of his illustrious career, Woods carded a three-under 69 in the third round on Sunday, after play was cancelled on Saturday due to heavy fog.
Starting the fourth round on Sunday as well, Woods then birdied the third, fourth and sixth before a par at seven before dusk came, leaving him on 17-under on the course where he won his last major - the 2008 US Open.
"I drove it great in the morning. I drove it on a string all day," Woods said.
"I've got 11 holes to play and I've got to go out and play them well."
When play was called off for the day on Sunday, Americans Nick Watney and Brandt Snedeker shared second at 11-under with Canada's Brad Fritsch fourth two shots further back.
Snedeker only had five holes left to play, while Watney had 10 to play and Fritsch 11.
No other players within nine strokes of Woods, who is on target to beat the record eight-shot winnin margin he set in 2008.
A victory on Monday would put the American only seven PGA titles behind the all time record of 82, held by Sam Snead.
The Farmers would also be the third event Woods has won seven times in his career, joining Bay Hill and Firestone as events he would have to win once more to equal Snead's record eight wins at Greensboro.
Defending champion Snedeker, who won the event from seven strokes back in 2012, made birdies on three of the first six holes, but was only one under over the next seven holes, allowing Woods to open up his significant advantage.
