Farmers Insurance Open: Tiger Extends Lead

Written by  on Monday, 28 January 2013

Tiger Woods looks on course to win his seventh Farmers Insurance Open title after the third round was finally completed and the fourth got underway on Sunday.

Woods held a two-shot lead when play was suspended at Torrey Pines on Saturday due to dense fog, and he wasted no time extending his lead on Sunday.

With 11 holes remaining in his the final round, officials called it a day due to the fading light. But the world number two is well on his way to victory after a three-under 69 put him at 17-under for the tournament, six strokes ahead of defending champion Brandt Snedeker (69) and Nick Watney (71) on 11-under.

"I've got to continue with executing my game plan," said Woods. "That's the idea. I've got 11 holes to play, and I've got to go out there and play them well."

If Woods wins the Farmers Insurance Open on Monday, it will be the third time he has won an individual PGA Tour event seven times having already done so at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Graham Green from the Leaderboard Golf Centre in Reading said:

"Woods is in a great position as he prepares to complete his final round. Considering his past successes on the Torrey Pines course, you can see he is very comfortable there."

David manages all aspects of the operation at both Dale Hill and Chart Hills. As a Director and a member of the board, he assists Paul and Jennifer in the running of Leaderboard.

David had been in hotel management for 20 years, the majority of which he spent working for the Goring family at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells. He was looking for his next challenge when the position of General Manger at Dale Hill became available in 2003. David had been for a number of interviews with other companies but when he met Paul and Jennifer for the first time he knew where he wanted to be.

David believed that they held the same approach to hospitality; that the focus was on getting the service right for the customers. In 2008 the General Manager at Chart Hills left the organisation and after meeting with Paul and Jennifer, David took over running both properties. In December 2010 Paul and Jennifer invited David to join them on the board as a Director of Leaderboard.

David loves his job and believes he is privileged to have the opportunity to run Dale Hill and Chart Hills. In his own words – "When I'm standing on the 5th tee on the Woosnam Course or I'm pulling into the drive at Chart Hills I stop and think – it does not get better than this."
