Tune in at 2:00 PM ET for the Monday finish of the Farmers Insurance Open. Ryan Kelly will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Hello and welcome to theScore's ongoing coverage of the PGA Tour. Today we present the conclusion of the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Tiger Woods led after 54 holes and with 11 holes still to play in his final round, leads by 6 strokes.
Brandt Snedeker, currently on joint second, had the chance to finish up his round with a 10-foot, 2-inch birdie putt at the 14th, but instead decided to mark it. His caddie then paced off the exact length, presumably so he could give it a few warm-up runs on the practice green.
For those of you concerned that Tiger wasn't wearing red yesterday, he was does have that familiar color on today.
And really, Sunday Red is a bit of a mis-nomar, isn't it? It's really a Final Round Red.
@Wildcat: He did have a pretty good payday with a T4 at last year's Canadian Open.
Par 4 14th - Even with the time to practice the length of the birdie putt, Snedeker can't cash-in. He cleans up his par and is officially running out of holes.
Par 4 15th - Snedeker with driver off the tee and he loses it to the left, finding the primary rough.
@guy: Waiting. the group in front is still playing the par 3.
Par 3 8th - Tiger with 8-iron off the tee and he hits a really nice cut into the right hole location, that settles about 15-feet below the hole. Solid shot.
Par 5 9th - Watney is placed perfectly off the tee, carrying his ball down the right side of the fairway.
@timkauffman: Looks beautiful. Seems to be a little wind -- not much -- and looks cool, with several players wearing sweaters or vests.
@Wildcat: The poa annua greens don't always wear great through the course of the day, so with the number of players playing yesterday -- 87 made the cut -- and the amount of golf played yesterday, I would guess that he was hoping he'd have a smoother roll this morning.
By the way, for our Canadian followers. I just noticed that Adam Hadwin withdrew before the culmination of this round. Assuming it was so he could get to Phoenix and try to Monday qualify.
Par 4 15th - Snedeker misses the green with his approach and then his pitch from just off the green races past the hole. He'll have a good 6-feet remaining for his par.
Par 5 9th - Watney lays up from just over 300 yards, but does so in an awkward spot. Putting it down the left side, with the hole cut front-left.
Par 4 15th - Snedeker's par attempt catches the right edge, but doesn't drop. He'll fall 7 back.
Par 3 8th - Tiger's birdie putt never threatened the hole -- spilling of just right off the cup -- but leaves himself a stress-free par to start the day.
@Kevbar: So a tie goes to the guy who got there first?
@Kevbar: Or how about just tournament wins?
Par 5 9th - Watney facing a tricky shot out of the primary rough and having to carry a couple of bunkers. He ends up getting a decent amount of spin on his ball out of the thick grass, to stop it about 7-feet past the hole.
@thegreenman: He would need some help from Rory to do that. McIlroy has a pretty big lead right now.
Par 3 16th - With the hole cut front-left, Snedeker carries his tee shot a bit too far, and while he's on the green, he'll have a ticklish downhill birdie putt.
@Neonridr: Well possibly, but it also depends on what Rory does.
Par 5 9th - Watney does indeed get up-and-down for birdie after his poor layup and moves within 5 of Tiger's lead, heading to the back nine.
@Kevbar: Understood. But frankly I don't think Tiger cares about silver medals in majors, either.
