Woods Happy With Torrey Pines Performance
Written by RockSport on January 30, 2018
Tiger Woods said he “did pretty well” after finishing seven shots off the leaders at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
The 14-time major winner was continuing his comeback after having back surgery last April and being sidelined for almost 10 months.
He carded rounds of 72, 71 and 70 before a 72 to finish on three under.
Woods said he “had to jack up the speed” on some shots but had “no issues at all” with his body.
“The big concern was playing out of the rough,” the 42 year-old American said.
“I hadn’t played out of rye grass since last year. I hit some really good ones out of there. Unfortunately I put myself in there.”
A winner for the tournament will be decided on Monday after a play-off was called off because of bad light.
Australian Jason Day, Sweden’s Alex Noren and American Ryan Palmer finished top of the leaderboard on 10 under to go into the play-off.
Palmer was eliminated after the first hole before Day and Noren could not be separated over four further holes before play was called off.
