Tiger tames Torrey

SAN DIEGO, California - Tiger Woods emerged from the fog-delayed US PGA Tour event at Torrey Pines victorious, winning by four-shots to claim his seventh event title and 75th overall tour win.

Returning on Monday to play his final 11 holes, Woods had a few stumbles but finished off an even-par final round 72 to be 14-under-par for the week, well in front of defending champion Brandt Snedeker (69) and Josh Teater (69) who finished at 10-under par.

Americans Jimmy Walker (71) and Nick Watney (71) shared fourth at nine-under-par.

With play going along at a glacial pace Woods seemed unable to keep full focus but still won easily.

"It got a little ugly towards the end and I started to lose my patience a little with the slow play and I lost my focus there a little bit but I buckled down and was able to get the win," Woods said.
