Diamond and Gold for Tiger
Tiger Woods looked like he lost interest — or rather, patience and concentration — on his way to a four-shot victory at the Farmers Insurance Open, in what was a long, drawn-out Monday finish, where play was so slow that you could take a solid power nap without missing a shot. You think I’m exaggerating? Hardly.
At one point, Woods held an eight-shot lead and for obvious reasons, like the fact he’s never missed a cut in 13 starts at this event, or that he had already won the PGA Tour tourney seven previous times, not to mention his eighth victory at Torrey Pines, counting the 2008 U.S. Open, his last major (number 14), in a dramatic 18-hole playoff against Rocco Mediate.
