Snedeker wins weather-hit Farmers Insurance Open


Strong winds caused chaos with the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open near San Diego in California not to mention with the The Torry Pines course.

The bad weather, which saw trees blown down and kept spectators away, pushed Sunday’s final round into Monday for some players.

Brandt Snedeker was not one of those men as he claimed the title having done enough with his fantastic 69 on Sunday.

It was the American’s second title at Torry Pines and eighth career win on the tour.

He ended the tournament on 6 under one shot clear of South Korea’s KJ Choi who had a 30-foot birdie putt on the last to force a play off.

But it drifted wide and with it so did his title chances.

Jimmy Walker was leading with eight holes left when play was halted on Sunday but he struggled with the conditions the following day and made four bogeys and four pars to finish in a tie for fourth three shots adrift.
