PGA event washed out

 

The PGA Tour season now starts today. Wind squalls that howled down the mountains above Maui in Hawaii were so severe Friday that the opening round of the Tournament of Champions was scrapped. Rickie Fowler and Jason Dufner, the first to tee off on the Plantation Course, only played eight holes. Six players in the 30-man field had not even teed off. The decision to wipe out the round was great news for Scott Stallings, who already was 7-over par through four holes. As for U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson? “It stinks for me,” he said. Simpson was 3 under when he stepped to the eighth tee, one of only two players under par. The other was Jonas Blixt, who was 1 under. The plan is to play 36 holes today. – Associated Press
