La Jolla, CA (Sports Network) - It wasn't as easy as expected, and it took longer than expected, but Tiger Woods finally wrapped up his seventh win at the Farmers Insurance Open on Monday.

Woods dropped four shots in the last six holes as he closed with an even-par 72. He finished his 75th PGA Tour title at 14-under-par 274.

He moves within seven wins of Sam Snead's PGA Tour victory total. Woods won at Torrey Pines for the eighth time, giving him the most wins at any one venue in PGA Tour history.

Woods played the final 11 holes on Monday after all but 10 minutes of Saturday's play was stopped by fog. Those 11 holes took just under four hours, and the pace of play clearly got to Woods.

Last year's champion Brandt Snedeker and Josh Teater both closed with 3-under 69s to share second place at 10-under-par 278. For Teater, that was his best career finish on the PGA Tour.

Nick Watney, the 2009 champ, and Jimmy Walker both shot 71 on Monday. They tied for fourth at minus-9, and were one stroke clear of Robert Garrigus (67), Rickie Fowler (68) and Aaron Baddeley (69).

Fowler was tied for last after the first round and made the cut on the number, before going 6-under par over the final two rounds.

Phil Mickelson, a three-time winner of this event, put together a round of 2- under 70, which left him tied for 51st at even-par 288.
