Jan. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Tiger Woods has a six-shot lead with 11 holes to play at the U.S. PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open, which he’s seeking to win for the seventh time.
After fog wiped out play two days ago at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California, organizers sought to play the third and fourth rounds yesterday. Woods finished seven holes in the final round -- making three birdies to get to 17-under-par -- before darkness halted play last night.
Woods, who is making his season debut on the PGA Tour, will resume play today at 2:10 p.m. New York time. Woods will be seeking a 75th PGA Tour title and to match his seven wins at both the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
“I’ve got to continue executing my game plan,” Woods said at a news conference. “I’ve got 11 holes to play and I’ve got to go out and play them well.”
The largest margin of victory at the Farmers Insurance Open is eight shots by Woods in 2008, when he won the event for the fourth straight year. He also won the tournament in 1999 and 2003 at Torrey Pines, which was the site of his U.S. Open victory in 2008.
Defending champion Brandt Snedeker and Nick Watney are tied for second at 11-under par.
