Day, Noren to finish playoff on Monday

Tiger Woods takes a drop on the 13th hole hole of the North Course at Torrey Pines Golf Course during the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament Friday Jan. 26 2018 in San Diego

There just weren't enough cheers for his liking. "It was fun to be out there". He finished ranked 23rd in driving distance and had no trouble hitting out of Torrey Pines' dense tough rough.

But he responded with three birdies the rest of the way, taking the lead with a two-putt birdie at the par-five 18th. Hoffman shot 70 for a combined three-under 141.

The pair were inseparable after five extra holes of a dramatic shootout on Sunday as they both birdied the 18th hole - the fourth time they had played the par-five - just before play was stopped. He entered this week 6-for-7 on the season with three top 25s and two top 10s, including a career-best T7 at the Shriners where he was a 54-hole co-leader.

He was never under par the entire round, and his near ace on the 16th brought him back to even par.

Tiger Woods stalked his 90-foot eagle putt as if a victory depended on how well he could cozy it up to the hole. Not helping matters was a two-way miss that had him playing nearly every hole from far afield to the left or right of his designated fairways. He blasted that out to 3 feet, which was the hard part. But in windy conditions, the field compacted and he ultimately carded a two-under par 70 to reach the playoff. His chip came out soft, and he missed a 6-foot putt to make double bogey.

"I tried as hard as I possibly could out there", he said. I played with two great girls today. Unless you're at a major championship, we don't see crowds like this.

But there was no mistaking his presence.

The former world No1 finished the Tour with a level par 72 in California at his first PGA Tour event since August 2015. That was right before he had a second and third surgery on his back, which kept him away for some 15 months. I hadn't played out of rye grass since past year, but I hit some really good ones out of there.

Woods' Sunday score matched his highest of his four trips around Torrey Pines. The fusion surgery eliminated the pain.

Tiger Woods, whose abundant trips around Torrey Pines Golf Course have brimmed with dazzle and domination, took an understated journey along the Pacific on Thursday, and it probably seemed suitable. "The greens were firm".

Palmer entered Friday's play in a two-way tie for second, one shot off the lead, then started par-bogey-bogey on the North Course.

"It played a lot tougher than it did in the past", Finau said.

I grinded my way around the golf course today.

Harrington hit fewer fairways than Woods - two of 14 - as he shot a 72 on the South Course to finish a shot outside the mark on level par. "I thought that might be a playoff number".

He was one stroke in front of Ryan Palmer, the first-round leader who bogeyed 14 and 16 to fall back with a one-over 73 for 206.

Defending champion Jon Rahm's expected challenge never materialised after four consecutive bogeys from the third hole saw him shoot 77 to finish eight strokes off the pace.

He produced some sensational recovery shots and solid putting to keep himself under par. Overall, I'm very happy the way I was able to fight out the scores. "I missed one at 13, but I hit a lot of good ones, which is good, it's a good sign going into tomorrow".
