Riley Wheeldon misses cut at Torrey Pines

Riley Wheeldon failed to make the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open, Jan. 23-26 at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif.

The Comox golfer shot rounds of 76-81 (157) at the PGA Tour event, which was won by Scott Stallings with a nine-under 279. Top Canadian was Graham DeLaet, one of five golfers to finish tied for second at eight-under 280.

While Wheeldon's weekend ended on Friday, defending champion Tiger Woods exited the tourney Saturday after failing to make the secondary cut. Canadian Mike Weir withdrew after shooting an opening round 77.

The Farmers Insurance tourney was Wheeldon's second PGA Tour event. He made his debut at last year's Canadian Open. The 23 year old, who calls Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community his home course, is now preparing for the start of the Web.com Tour next month.
