Viking washed out for second day
Play in the US PGA Tour’s Viking Classic has been abandoned without a ball being hit for the second successive day.
With the event already poised for a Monday finish, the Viking Classic has now been washed out without a ball being hit for the second successive day,
Two consecutive rounds have not been postponed on the PGA Tour since the 2005 BellSouth Classic, but that was the case at the Annandale Club in Madison, Mississippi on Friday after further torrential rain.
Tee-times were pushed back for a second day in a row in an attempt to make the course playable, but officials were forced to take second best once again as the wet weather continued.
Thunderstorms are forecast throughout the night and although the first round is slated for a 7.20am Saturday start, a later tee-off looks a more likely scenario.
A 54-hole tournament is expected to be played, although with no event next week play could conceivably go on until Tuesday in order to reach a conclusion.
