At a foggy Torrey Pines, nothing left to do but shoot the breeze

SAN DIEGO — Nobody had the foggiest idea what was going on Saturday at the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament. The only thing that was clear was that Tiger Woods was in the lead and Mother Nature was in charge.

Pars and birdies weren’t the story. Visibility was. Nobody saw this coming. As the day went on, nobody saw anything.

Puffs of mist kept blowing in over the signature cliffs of Torrey Pines. A few players with early tee times completed about 10 minutes of golf. Those scheduled for later stood around the putting green and driving range for hours, telling jokes and booking new flights and hotel rooms.
