LA JOLLA, Calif. â When Brandt Snedeker walked off the 18th green of Torrey Pines North course with the lead of the Farmers Insurance Open, Tiger Woods was on Cheap Beats Headphones his to way to tearing up the more difficult South.
But things have changed since the last of Woodsâ seven wins here.
âThere are 155 guys Iâm still worried about besides him,â Snedeker said.
Turns out, he was right. Woods, 6-under through 14, wasnât able to finish off his round in vintage style. And while only four players, including Snedekerâs co-leader K.J. Choi (7-under-par 65s), shot better on the South, Woodsâ two bogeys over the final four holes left him tied for 20th with a 4-under 68 not bad but it could have been better.
âYeah I am,â he said when asked if he was happy Beats Studio Headphones Cheap with the day. âI had it to six (under) and had a beautiful putt at 14 to get it to seven and I get up and down on 18 to get to four. After being 1-under and then 1-over, to battle back and get to six was a good job.â
With a wild drive and three-putt, Woods fought back from a double bogey on the fourth with a birdie on 5 followed by an eagle on 6, where he holed out from the bunker. Ultimately, he had to grind for a par on the final hole when his 98-yard lob wedge found the back bunker on the closing par-5, the scene of the dramatic putt that put him into a playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open. He rolled in an 8-foot comebacker, which made his caddie, Joe LaCava, say, âThank God he made par.â
In all, it was a lot better than last week when he missed the cut in Abu Dhabi. He hit seven 7-of-14 of these tight fairways and 13-of-17 greens with 27 putts. His eagle on No. 6 came when he holed out of the bunker.
âVery encouraging,â LaCava said. âObviously he feels very comfortable here, so that helps. Itâs second nature to him, the place. But youâve still got to shoot the score and play well, which he did. It was probably the worst score he could have shot.â
Woods holds the South Course record with a 62, but his best score since the course was redone is 66. It seemed within reach until he drove it well right behind a tree on 15. He tried to carve it left to right but left it in the rough. He gave himself a 10-footer for par but missed it.
Snedeker, currently the second-highest American in the world behind Woods, Beats Headphones For Cheap may be becoming the new master of Torrey Pines. Heâs 52-under-par in 17 rounds after Thursdayâs 65.
âItâs funny,â last yearâs FedEx Cup winner said. âYou look at all the golf courses I should play well on, this should not be one of them. This is a long, difficult golf course with lots of rough and hitting a lot of iron shots, and my strengths is driving and putting, so it doesnât really add up well around here.
âBut for some reason itâs been good to me,â he added. âI never really panic around here. I always know Iâm one round away from playing really well.â
Woods is one more good round from being in familiar position here. He just has to finish what he starts.
