Not only is Tiger Woods failing to win golf tournaments, he's failing to complete them.

Woods withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open after 11 holes because of tightness in his lower back that he attributed to a fog delay. It's the latest setback for Woods, who has missed the cut three times, withdrawn twice and finished 69th in his last six tournaments. He hasn't played four rounds in a tournament since last year's British Open, where he was never in serious contention. Woods hasn't earned a PGA victory since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational, a drought that's dropped him to 56th in the world rankings.

Woods was playing for the first time since firing a career-high 82 at the Phoenix Open.

Nicholas Thompson had an 8-under 64 on the North Course and had a one-shot lead over Michael Thompson when play was suspended by darkness. Brooks Koepka had a 66 on the North, four days after winning the Phoenix Open. Cameron Tringale also carded a 66 on the North.

The best score on the tougher South Course belonged to Jhonnatan Vegas, who shot 67.
