Donald Miralle/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — Tiger Woods won the fog-delayed Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego on Monday by four strokes over Brandt Snedeker and Josh Teater.  It’s the seventh time in his career that Woods has won the tournament, and it’s his record eighth victory at Torrey Pines.

The 14-time major champion began the day with a six-shot lead with 11 holes to play, and despite finishing with an even-par 72, he won his 75th career tournament on the PGA Tour. He is now seven victories away from tying Sam Snead’s all-time wins mark.

San Diego native Phil Mickelson finished the tournament tied for 51st place, 14 shots behind Woods.
