The 2013 Farmers Insurance Open will conclude on Monday, with the last group through just seven holes of the final round. In that group is runaway leader Tiger Woods, who carries a six-shot lead into the Monday finish on the South Course at Torrey Pines.
Woods still has 11 holes to play, but even with some of his struggles off the tee late Sunday night, the remaining stretch would appear to be a mere formality on the march to his 75th career victory. Woods missed the first five fairways at the start of his fourth round, but still managed to avoid a bogey and actually extended his lead by two shots with three more birdies. His short game and dominance on the par-5s have created the cushion.
The Monday finish was expected as a full day was lost on Saturday due to dense fog in the area. With 87 players making the cut, and the limited daylight of January, no groups were able to complete the tournament during the dawn-to-dusk play on Sunday. The decision was also made to not repair the players between rounds on Sunday, so Woods continues to play with Billy Horschel and Casey Wittenberg in the last group. The first groups have just three holes remaining in the fourth round.
With all players out on the course, there are no remaining tee times for Monday but play will resume at 2:10 p.m. ET. Golf Channel will have the broadcast from 2:10 up to 4 p.m. ET, at which point CBS will take over and carry coverage of the finish. That should wrap up around 5:30 p.m. ET, and reports on Sunday indicated that CBS asked the Tour for a later start so that they could carry coverage of that late afternoon finish.
The collateral damage of that decision is that some players, such as Tiger's playing partners, have no chance to make it to Phoenix in time for Monday qualifying at the Waste Management Open. There were initial reports that the Tour would try to finish up early on Monday and try and jet those players over to Phoenix in time. Instead, it will be a Monday afternoon conclusion at Torrey Pines -- circumstances similar to Tiger's last win here in the 2008 U.S. Open.
If you're at the office, you should be able to watch the finish via CBS and the Tour's livestream.
