Tuesday finish planned at TOC
Last updated: 7th January 2013
Strong winds forced play to be abandoned for the third day at the PGA Tour's season-opening Tournament of Champions on Sunday.
Some players completed seven rounds on Friday before play was halted, but organizers decided to scrap the scores nonetheless.
Then on Saturday no play was possible, while slightly more than an hour's play took place on Sunday, before organizers decided to scrap the round again.
Plans are now in place for another start with two rounds to take place on Monday and then 18 more holes on Tuesday to complete a 54-hole event.
It's unfortunate but it started off bad and got worse," the PGA Tour's vice president of rules and operations Slugger White commented after the third rain-ruined day in Kapalua.
"At the start it was 25mph, gusting 30mph, and that was OK but when it started gusting over 40mph we couldn't get the balls to stop on the greens so we couldn't play."
The only Brit in the field, Ian Poulter, repeatedly pulled out of shots as he tried to steady himself in the strong winds.
"I don't know what that is. You can't pull a trigger. You're taking 20 practice swings because you can't stand up. I guess what we've done is shown everyone it's unplayable," Poulter said.
"That's not golf.
"In some respect, at least we hit a couple of shots. Three days of sitting in the hotel is not good. At least I've warmed up for something. I'm just not sure what I've warmed up for."
