Tiger Woods may or may not be back -- whatever that means -- but throughout the longest of Sundays on the Southern California coast, he was once again the champion he used to be.
Woods played 25 holes at a soggy Torrey Pines in 6-under par and, with 11 holes left in his final round at the Farmers Insurance Open, takes a commanding six-shot lead into the Monday finish.
It's been a virtuoso, vintage performance by Woods, who will surely win for the eighth time on a course he's loved since he was a boy, and one that's served to quiet wagging tongues.

After an infestation of termites in the enormous household, she decided to knock it down to create a 21,000-square-foot masterpiece on the North...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Tiger Woods hates the question, even though the answer should be simple enough.
Is he back?
Woods was asked that when he ended his 749-day drought by winning his World Challenge at the end of 2011. The question came up in various forms last year after each of his wins at Bay Hill, Memorial and the AT&T National at Congressional...
Your correspondent has emphatically said for years that golf performance should not be evaluated by 10-minute intervals. That notion tends to get lost in these days of Internet immediacy, in these days of the hole-by-hole Tiger Tracker, when one hole of tweeted play-by-play carries too much word weight and lacks big-picture perspective.
