Tiger Woods Leads Tournament by Six Strokes

Final round of fog-delayed tournament to be televised Monday (Jan. 28) at 2 p.m.

Is Tiger Woods back in major championship form? Could be.

The world's best-known golfer is off to a hot start in 2013. As media outlets are noting, he has a six-stroke lead with 11 holes to play Monday (Jan. 28) in the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego. The tournament is being played at Torrey Pines, where Woods last won a major tournament, in 2008.

And you can watch the final round of the fog-delayed tournament for yourself. Because Woods is in the lead, CBS will televise the final round beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern time Monday.

And it's a reminder that the 2013 Masters, the year's first major golf tourney, will be played on April 11-14.

As ESPN.com reported, Woods played 25 holes Sunday. He started with a two-shot lead and tripled it before darkness forced play to be halted.

"It was a long day...and I played well today," Woods said. "Overall, I'm very pleased that I was able to build on my lead."

Now 37, Woods has won 14 major tournaments -- four fewer than all-time leader Jack Nicklaus. Since 2008, Woods has been in rebuilding form, following well-publicized marital indiscretions and a subsequent divorce from Elin Nordegren.

Woods won three PGA Tour events and $1.9 million -- 15th on the tour -- in 2012.
