Oops! Someone thought Kyle Stanley was a lock to win at Torrey Pines

Kyle Stanley appeared to be a mortal lock to win the Farmers Insurance Open on Sunday afternoon. Holding a three-shot lead as he stepped onto the 18th tee box, tournament officials assumed it would be OK if they started putting Stanley's name on the trophy and oversized check.

Boy was that a mistake. Stanley, as you probably already know, went on to triple the 18th hole and lose on the second playoff hole to Brandt Snedeker. While Snedeker got the trophy on Sunday, I'm guessing he's probably still wondering where his oversized check went. It happens to be under the 18th hole grandstand ... with Kyle Stanley's name on it. I'm going to guess tournament officials didn't have a bottle of Wite-Out on hand to fix the mistake.
