SAN DIEGO (AP/WRCB) - Not even a sloppy finish could keep Tiger Woods from another win at Torrey Pines.
Woods led by as many as eight shots on the back nine Monday until a painfully slow finish led to some indifferent shots in the final hour of the Farmers Insurance Open.
Woods closed with an even-par 72 for a four-shot victory. He won the tournament for the seventh time, and picked up his record eighth win as a pro at Torrey Pines, which includes the 2008 U.S. Open.
Woods had a six-shot lead with 11 holes to play when he returned Monday to complete the fog-delayed tournament and no one got close.
It was the 75th career win for Woods on the PGA Tour, seven behind the record held by Sam Snead.
Locals Luke List and Harris English also wrapped up their weather-delayed final rounds Monday, though the former fared a bit better.
List, a Ringgold native, ended on a high-note with a one-under 71 to tie for 68th at 2-over for the tournament. List was within one shot of the lead after a 6-under 66 in round one, but shot a combined 9-over across his next 36 holes.
He leaves Torrey Pines with a $12,200 prize, his second straight payday as a rookie on the PGA Tour.
English's game unraveled when the inclement weather set in Saturday. The former Baylor School star stood at 6-under through the first two rounds, but sank to a 3-over 75 in round three and closed out a 6-over 78 for his final round Monday.
He finished in a tie for 73rd at +3, earning a check for $11,590.
