Brandt Snedeker shot a 3-under 69 in treacherous weather conditions Sunday and is the clubhouse leader at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego after play was suspended.
Snedeker is at 6-under 282 entering the completion of the final round Monday. Snedeker completed his round prior to play being suspended for the third time due to the heavy winds and rain at Torrey Pines' South Course.
Play was halted at 6:26 p.m. ET -- 3:26 p.m. local time -- with 48 golfers on the course as winds gusted over 45 mph. Jimmy Walker was the leader at 7 under through 10 holes when the decision was made to resume play Monday.
Snedeker was six shots off the lead entering Sunday and was able to avoid mistakes despite conditions that included sideways rain. He played the final 17 holes without a bogey.
"It's like playing a British Open on a U.S. Open setup," Snedeker said after his round. "This course is so tough. It's blowing 25 mph, gusting out there and windy and rainy conditions. It's really tough.
"I wish I could say why I shot what I shot today. It was one of those days where you throw everything out of your mind and go play golf and grind as best as you possibly could."
Shane Lowry of Ireland shot a 73, the second-best round by golfers who completed their round. He is at even-par 288.
Eleven golfers who completed their rounds shot in the 80s -- the worst score belonging to Angel Cabrera (84).
In relation to par, Snedeker is tied with K.J. Choi of South Korea at 6 under. Choi finished 10 holes.
Kevin Streelman and Sweden's Freddie Jacobson are tied for fourth place at 5 under. Steelman completed 13 holes, while Jacobson finished 11.
J.B. Holmes sits alone in sixth place at 4 under through 13 holes.
Scott Brown, who shared the third-round lead with Choi, and Sweden's Jonas Blixt are tied for seventh at 3 under. Blixt has seven holes to go, and Brown has eight holes remaining.
