LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods struggled down the stretch but managed to hang on for his 75th career victory with an even-par 72 Monday to claim the Farmers Insurance Open.

Woods, who held a six-stroke lead when fourth-round play resumed Monday, carded two bogeys and a double-bogey late in the round but still finished with a four-shot margin of victory at 14-under-par 274.

The win was the eighth of his career at Torrey Pines -- the most for any golfer at a single course in PGA Tour history -- and moved him within seven of Sam Snead's overall career win total.

The tournament finished Monday after thick fog all but wiped out play Saturday.

Finishing tied for second at minus-10 were defending champion Brandt Snedeker and Josh Teater, both of whom carded 3-under 69s.

One stroke further back were 2009 winner Nick Watney and Jimmy Walker (71 each), while Robert Garrigus (67), Rickie Fowler (68) and Aaron Baddeley (69) ended knotted for fifth at 8-under 280.
