SAN DIEGO (AP) Not even a sloppy finish could keep Tiger Woods from another win at Torrey Pines.

Woods led by as many as eight shots on the back nine Monday until a painfully slow finish led to some indifferent shots in the final hour of the Farmers Insurance Open.

No matter.

Woods closed with an even-par 72 for a four-shot victory. He won the tournament for the seventh time, and picked up his record eighth win as a pro at Torrey Pines, which includes the 2008 U.S. Open.

Woods had a six-shot lead with 11 holes to play when he returned Monday to complete the fog-delayed tournament and no one got close.

It was the 75th career win for Woods on the PGA Tour, seven behind the record held by Sam Snead.
