Brandt Snedeker Leads In The Clubhouse At Weather-Suspended Farmers Insurance Open

The South Course at Torrey Pines is routinely one of the toughest on the PGA Tour, ranking as the sixth most difficult track in 2015. Add the weather conditions players faced on Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open and you have one of the most difficult days of golf many of these career professionals have ever seen. 

Brandt Snedeker, who made the cut on the number, fired a 3-under par 69 in the final round to put 6-under par on the board as the leader in the clubhouse when play was suspended for the third and final time due to high winds. Jimmy Walker held the overnight lead at 7-under par, but still had eight holes to play in his final round.

54-hole co-leader Scott Brown has endured a similar fate to many on the property Sunday, shooting a front-nine 41 to drop to 3-under par for the tournament. KJ Choi, who also shared the lead heading into Sunday, is tied with Snedeker at 6-under par for the tournament after playing his first 10 holes in 3-over.

While there were examples all over Torrey Pines on Sunday of just how difficult the conditions were, there may not have been a more pertinent case study than that of the threesome of Colt Knost, Billy Horschel and Scott Stallings. 

And down on the green, after questioning rules officials of the playability of the course, Knost did this.

How about Horschel’s reaction? 

Further proof of how hard it was out there on Sunday: 

Play will resume on Monday at 8 a.m. PST. The weather forecast for the completion of the final round is expected to remain windy with speeds upwards of 25 miles per hour.
