SNEDEKER ENDURES AT TORREY PINES IT’S never a bad Monday when you show up for work, don’t have to do a thing, can leave by lunchtime and they hand you a cheque for US$1,170,000. Such was the start to Brandt Snedeker’s week when he won a second Farmers Insurance Open in bizarre circumstances. His first win at Torrey Pines four years ago came in a playoff after Kyle Stanley triple-bogeyed the 72nd hole. This time, Snedeker did his heavy lifting on Sunday by posting a phenomenal 69 – the best final round by three shots – in rain and howling winds but had to wait until Monday for the victory as the rest of the field still had as many as eight holes to play when play was finally halted on a miserable Sunday. Snedeker finished 6-under for the tournament, a stroke better than K.J. Choi, who posted his best result since June 2014. Choi’s fellow 54-hole co-leader Scott Brown carded a horror 87.

Playing in the final group, the World No.11 birdied the 72nd hole to close with a three under 69, to finish two strokes clear of playing partner Thorbjorn Olesen (71) and Rafa Cabrera-Bello (70). Overnight leader Paul Lawrie, bidding to become the tournament’s first three-time winner, dropped to a tie for 13th after a final round 78.

It was the 20-year-old’s third career LPGA Tour title. Kim finished at 18-under-par and two shots ahead of world No. 3 Stacy Lewis, defending champion Sei Young Kim and Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist.
