LA JOLLA -- Final round play has been suspended to Monday due to heavy rain and wind Sunday of the Farmers Insurance Open in Torrey Pines. 

Play was suspended three times Sunday until officials announced at about 3:30 p.m. that would be permanently suspended until 8 a.m. Monday. Spectators will not be allowed on the course Monday morning, per officials:

"In the interest of public safety, the PGA Tour, Century Club of San Diego, and the City of San Diego have determined the course will remain closed to the public for Monday's scheduled finish."

Brandt Snedeker closed with one of his best rounds ever Sunday and now has to wait to see if it's enough to win the Farmers Insurance Open.
Snedeker was the only player to finish at par or better in the raging wind and rain at Torrey Pines. He closed with a 3-under 69, going the final 17 holes without a bogey.
The gusts became so severe that tents the South Course was evacuated not long after Snedeker finished. The final round was suspended until Monday morning.
Snedeker posted a 6-under 282.
Jimmy Walker was at 7-under par through 10 holes, while K.J. Choi was at 6 under and playing with Walker and Scott Brown in the final group.
