The PGA Tour deemed Monday's delayed finish to the Farmers Insurance Open, played in front of zero spectators, "a huge success."

"It was absolutely fantastic," said Tour boss Tim Finchem.  "There was none of that stupid shouting and noise and moving around from fans that distracts the players; that was the best thing.  The guys had complete silence; for once they were able to concentrate fully and it reflected in the excellent scoring. When it was all over, there was no rubbish to pick up or anything; we were out of there at 5pm. Lots of lessons from this; I mean if we could get to the situation of eliminating spectators from events altogether, that would be ideal for us, the players, TV viewers and just about everybody."

Meanwhile European Tour boss Keith Pelley was quick to warn his PGA Tour counterpart about his strategy.  "We play in front of nobody every week and it's complete shit," Pelley said.
