Late troubles leave Rose three ahead of Scott at Torrey Pines

Share

Tiger Woods is officially done with his first tournament of the 2019 season, having finished his final round at the Farmers Insurance Open.

'Overall, shooting a couple under par on the south course is not so bad, but now I'm forced to have to shoot a low one tomorrow over there (on the north course),' Woods said after rolling in a 12-foot birdie at the last.

"I'm playing well and just need to keep producing", said Rose, whose 20 birdies this week are the most in the field. "Still something positive to end the week on".

Another tiny victory: It was the first time since 2008 that Woods broke par all four rounds at Torrey Pines.

Knowing he needed something "special" after posting two two-under rounds of 70 on Thursday and Friday, Woods settled for a one-under 71 and a five-under total of 211 that left him languishing in a tie for 46th midway through the third round.

Jon Rahm hit 13 of 18 greens in regulation during his third round at the Farmers Insurance Open, finishing at 14 under for the tournament.

"That would be nice, " Woods said. "Figured a few things out as the week was going along". Instead of packing it in and counting down the minutes until he got to his private jet and headed to his Florida compound, he set a goal to stalk - he wanted to finish double digits under par. "It's not too much to ask if I play well". But the South course was 600 yards shorter back then, and the 36-hole leader in 1999 was Ted Tryba.

Woods, who's making his 2019 debut in this event, is at 5 under for the tournament. But the truth is, that Tiger's gone and isn't coming back. When I read them right, they went in. "So that helps a lot". He managed to card birdies on his 14th, 17th and 18th holes to salvage a decent score, and if there's anything to be taken from this round, it's that Woods clearly got better as the day went on.

The seven-time champion did make an encouraging start with a birdie at the par-five 10th, but he could not better par over the next six holes before finally getting a putt to drop at the long 17th.

The biggest question about Woods was the color of his Sunday shirt, which up close was red-and-white stripes, but with enough tiny streaks in the red that from a distance it appeared to be pink. He didn't even wear his familiar red Sunday, the color scheme of stripes screaming pink more than any type of red you could envision.
