LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Another bank of fog has descended on Torrey Pines and prompted officials to wait a little longer before resuming play at the Farmers Insurance Open.
The third round was supposed to resume at 3:20 p.m. ET but tournament officials first decided to hold the players in position, then ended up bringing them back off the course.
"There is nothing we can do about it," said Mark Russell, the vice president of rules and competition for the PGA TOUR.
Russell said where the skies were clear 30 minutes ago players can't see 30 yards in front of them right now.
"Hopefully, it gets better and we can play some golf,' Russell said. "If not, we'll see what happens."
Russell said he still hopes the tournament will be able to finish Sunday. If not, he said, Monday enters the picture.
"We need to play all the golf we can," he said. "We need to get teed off in the next hour and half to have a chance (to finish Sunday)."
