Tiger Woods survived a sloppy back nine to win California's fog-delayed Farmers Insurance Open by four shots - his 75th victory on the PGA Tour.

Resuming six clear of the field with 11 holes of his final round remaining, the American was never in any real danger.

The 37-year-old's eighth triumph at Torrey Pines broke the PGA record for the number of wins at a single course.

Woods's compatriots Brandt Snedeker and Josh Teater tied for second place, four shots behind Woods at 10 under par.

Woods got off to an excellent start in gloriously sunny conditions near San Diego, carding birdies at the third, fourth and sixth holes to reach the turn in 33.

But having dug himself out of trouble a couple of times after some wayward play from the tee, he bogeyed 14 and double-bogeyed 15 to reduce his lead to five.

Another bogey on 17 will have irked Woods, and taken the gloss off an otherwise highly satisfactory week's work.

He finished his level-par round of 72 with a routine par.

Woods has now won three PGA Tour events seven times - the Farmers Insurance Open follows the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
