Brandt Snedeker's excellent final round through difficult weather conditions on Sunday was enough to hold off the rest of the field at the Farmers Insurance Open. 

His three-under 69 on Sunday put him at six under for the tournament and gave him the clubhouse lead on Sunday, though at the time, Jimmy Walker was above him on the scorecard at seven under.

The final round had to be halted due to the stormy, wintry conditions on Sunday and commenced on Monday at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Walker couldn't hold onto his lead, ultimately finishing at three under, while K.J. Choi ultimately finished just behind Snedeker at five under.

Here's the final leaderboard:

Snedeker took home a winning share of $1.17 million for his victory.

His performance on Sunday was impressive for a number of reasons, from the difficulty of the course to the conditions on it. Snedeker evaluated his own showing following the round.

"It's like playing a British Open on a U.S. Open setup," Snedeker told Bob Harig of "This course is so tough, it's blowing 25 miles an hour, gusting out there and windy and rainy conditions. It's really tough." 

He added: "I wish I could say why I shot what I shot today. It was one of those days where you throw everything out of your mind and go play golf and grind as best as you possibly can."

Of course, his excellent form of late probably contributed to his torrid final round. And it should make him tough to beat, too, as Jason Sobel of ESPN noted:

Walker's five bogeys after Snedeker went into the clubhouse at six under were ultimately his downfall, though it's hard to blame him too much for struggling through the conditions on Sunday and Monday. Ultimately, Snedeker was the only player to shoot below par in the final round, while the only other player to shoot par at all was Robert Streb.

Of the top-10 finishers, only Snedeker and Kevin Streelman (74) shot better than a 76 in Round 4. 

Of course, the conditions likely won't handicap so many players on the upcoming PGA Tour schedule. Given the way he's playing right now, however, it would seem as though very little is going to bother Snedeker.
