The 2012 Farmers Insurance Open is about halfway through its final day and, barring a monumental collapse, it looks as though Kyle Stanley is going to end up atop the leaderboard when all is said and done. The third-year pro is six strokes ahead of his closest competition through eight holes on Day 4 of the tournament.
Stanley birdied three of the holes on the front-nine of the Torrey Pines course in La Jolla, Calif., with his lone misstep being a bogey on the eighth hole. It shouldn't be a problem, however, as the former Clemson Tigers golfer built up an impressive lead earlier in the tournament.
Brandt Snedeker is second in the tournament, but his 14-under is six strokes worse than Stanley. John Rollins, Justin Leonard and Cameron Tringale round out the Top 5 hoping to catch up to Stanley as the tournament comes to an end.
