The fog lifted Sunday and revealed a familiar sight: Tiger Woods in command at Torrey Pines.

Woods had great control of his tee shots and began to pull away from the field with a 3-under 69 in the third round to build a four-shot lead in the Farmers Insurance Open. Fog wiped out all of Saturday, so players were going as long as daylight allowed and returning Monday to complete the tournament.

Woods was likely to get in about six holes of the fourth round. Woods, with his first outright 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour since 2009, was at 14-under 202.

Brad Fritsch, a PGA Tour rookie from Canada, had a 70 and was at 206. Erik Compton finished birdie-eagle for a 71 and was five shots behind.
