Snedeker closes with 69, then waits to see if it's enough

SAN DIEGO (AP) Brandt Snedeker closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday in raging weather at Torrey Pines, and then had to wait to see if it would be enough to win the Farmers Insurance Open.

And that could take another day.

The final round was suspended for the third time because of gusts that topped 40 mph. Jimmy Walker was at 7-under par and led by one shot over Snedeker and K.J. Choi. Walker and Choi still had eight holes to play.

Snedeker was done at 6-under 282.

Chad Campbell, who shot a 79, played with Snedeker and called it one of the greatest rounds he has seen. The numbers back that up. The scoring average Sunday was just over 78, and Snedeker was the only player to shoot par or better.
