Mother Nature Dominates at Farmers Insurance Open

THEY COULDN'T FINISH THE FARMERS Insurance Open at Torrey Pines yesterday because the weather showed up and battered the field. The players who finished their final rounds averaged higher than 78.

Meanwhile, Brandt Snedeker put together a 69 in the wet and windy (up to 40 m.p.h.) conditions. "It will stand as one of the best rounds of the year when things are done," wrote Mike Purkey in Global Golf Post.

Sneds is the clubhouse leader at 6 under, but Jimmy Walker is currently ahead by a shot, among a group of Monday finishers. Due to dangerous conditions with high winds, there are no spectators at Torrey today.

Patrick Reed withdrew after an 81 in the third round. Something about his ankle. Hmmm. Graham DeLaet was not sympathetic.

"Does anyone have Pat Reed's #?" DeLaet tweeted. "I need to call him for WD'ing and leaving us as a twosome in the final group off 10 in brutal weather."

Someone responded to the tweet, and DeLaet added, "No I shot 82 because I missed 13 greens and couldn't chip or putt. I'm still playing (Sunday) though."

Finally, below is Colt Knost, who didn't want to hit this putt because his ball was oscillating. Watch what happened.
