Farmers Insurance Open, Tiger Set to Close the Deal January 28 2013

Cruising into Monday finale Tiger Woods / Getty Images Tiger Woods is seven holes into his final round at the Farmers Insurance Open, and has opened up a six shot lead, only divine intervention can stop him from winning his eight title at Torrey Pines. Tiger is at -17 under par for the tournament. Brandt Snedeker and Nick Watney are six shots adrift of Tiger and honestly have no hope.  Tiger could win from here using nothing but a five iron, he could even use it for putting. The rest of the field are so far behind they are not even worth mentioning. This scenario is probably not good for the sponsors, the only paying observers on the course will be Tiger fans, this will include the daft ones who shout, "Get in the hole" even when Tiger tee's off on the par fives. To my knowledge no one on the PGA Tour has ever had a hole in one on a par five, please correct me if I am wrong. Tiger said about playing 25 holes; "It was a long day, and I played well today. Overall, I'm very pleased that I was able to build on my lead. I've driven the ball well, I've hit my irons well, and I've chipped and putted well,  I've hit good putts, they all haven't gone in." Nick Watney remarked; " All we can do tomorrow is go out and try to make him think about it a little bit and see what happens." Brandt Snedeker spoke about making up six shots on Tiger; "I've got a guy at the top of the leaderboard that doesn't like giving up leads. So I have to go catch him. "I've got to make some more birdies, I've got a long way to go. I did a great job today of staying patient and playing good golf." Probably not too much more to say, apart from give the trophy to Tiger.
