Walker leads at weather-hit Torrey Pines
Jimmy Walker had a one-stroke lead in hand before play was suspended at the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday due to heavy wind and rain.
Walker was on seven-under after 10 holes and is in front of American compatriot Brandt Snedeker and South Korea’s K.J. Choi, who are in a tie for second on six-under.
Kevin Streelman and Freddie Jacobson are in a tie for fourth on five-under, with the former having five holes left to play and the latter having seven.
Walker struggled in the difficult conditions as he made a bogey on the second, which occurred when he missed a seven-foot par putt, before going on to make another one at the seventh, where he failed to convert a five-foot par putt. However, he did manage to make a birdie at the eighth to finish on one-over before play was suspended.
Snedeker, who won the event in 2012, was one of the few golfers to finish their final round as he carded a three-under-par 69.
The 35-year-old, who finished as the runner-up at the Sony Open after losing to Fabian Gomez in a playoff, had a front nine to forget as it consisted of a lone bogey at the first, which came about when he missed a 14-foot par putt. However, he shifted his game to the next level on the back nine as he made four birdies in five holes, which included a 37-foot birdie putt at the 13th.
Choi, who led after the second and third rounds, was unable to maintain his momentum as he found himself on three-over once the round was suspended. The 45-year-old was unable to get his bearings right on the front nine as he made three bogeys and a birdie. His fortunes did not change heading into the back nine as he made his fourth bogey of the round at the 10th.
Streelman and Jacobson both endured turbulent rounds as the former made three birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey to finish on one-over after 13 holes, while the latter recorded two birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey to end up on two-over after 11 holes.
