After a one-day postponement, Tiger Woods is now back out on the course at Torrey Pines for the 2013 Farmers Insurance Open. Woods lit up the North Course on Friday to take a two-shot lead at the midpoint of the tournament, but dense fog in the La Jolla area delayed Saturday's third round. A couple players got off the first tee, but the Tour promptly decided to scrap play for the day and schedule golf from sun-up to sundown on Sunday.
And Woods is off to a steady start on Sunday, ripping his driver down the middle of the fairway on the first two holes. After an average approach shot, Woods had 21 feet left on the first green. He easily cleaned up with a two-putt par to stay at 11-under.
On the second hole, however, a perfect drive enabled Tiger to pull wedge for his second shot. He fired a dart to the center of the green, spinning it back to within a foot. With all the rain over the past two days at Torrey Pines, the greens will certainly be receptive on approach shots — and Woods quickly demonstrated that on the second. After nearly sinking it with the wedge, he strolled up and quickly tapped in his birdie putt to move to 12-under and extend his lead to three shots over Billy Horschel, Josh Teater, and Brad Fritsch.
With 87 players making the cut, it's highly unlikely the tournament is wrapped up on Sunday. The Tour will not re-pair players, so Woods will play with Horschel and Casey Wittenberg during Sunday's march. It's likely he'll still have nine holes to play on a Monday finish. With the way Woods has looked so far, and the relatively underwhelming leaderboard around him, those final nine holes may be a formality on the way to his 75th career win.
