After a two hour delay for Fog on the golf course, it was another good round at the Farmers Insurance Open. As Spain’s Jon Rahm, who won this event on an eagle putt on the 72nd hole leads Ryan Palmer who had 10 birdies yesterday by one stroke. Rahm sits at -12 under par, Palmer is at -11 under par. Awkwardly enough the last time they both won was when they were playing together as a team at the Zurich Classic last year.
It was a picture-perfect day for Jon Rahm as he shot a -7 under 65 including shooting an eagle on the second hole as he holed out from 111 yards. Rahm was also 16 for 16 on putts inside 15 feet and looks to be the 10th player that has won the Farmers Insurance Open multiple times.
Ryan Palmer had a pretty good day as well and even though he lost the lead, he did keep himself in sight of the lead as he shot a -1 71 on the day. Palmer’s last individual tournament win was in 2010 at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Palmer hit 9 out of 14 fairways and hit 16 of 18 greens during his round.
Tiger Woods had a pretty good day as well as early on it looked like we could see Tiger move up the leaderboard heading into Sunday. Tiger Woods shot a 69 on the day and is five shots off the lead. Tiger Woods has come back from five shots down before. In fact, he has won four times after being down 5 shots or less after 54 holes. Remember, if he wins this weekend, if he wins it will be his 83rd tour win and will be the most all-time in the history of the PGA Tour.
The Final Round of the Farmers Insurance Open begins at 1 PM on the Golf Channel and will continue at 3 PM on CBS.
