Rain, rain, go away

Attention fans who were planning to attend the practice round for THE PLAYERS on Monday: Unfortunately, it’s been cancelled because there have been more than 5 inches of rain at TPC Sawgrass in the past two days. But Monday tickets will be honored for Tuesday.

Geez, what’s going on with the weather this year? It’s been absolutely cray-cray! Hopefully, the crappy weather has passed in Ponte Vedra because there have already been way too many delays due to Mother Nature’s wrath. 

The full press release:

THE PLAYERS announces schedule changes due to weather

Saturday’s THE PLAYERS 5K with Donna postponed

Course closed to public on Monday; tickets honored Tuesday

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 3, 2013) – Due to heavy rains that have brought more than 5 inches to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass over the past 36 hours, tournament and PGA TOUR officials have adjusted the event schedule in order to allow the course to drain properly, minimize any damage that would affect the competition and give the course maintenance team as much time as possible to prepare the golf course once the storm conditions subside.  Most notably, THE PLAYERS Championship will not be open to fans on Monday, May 6.  All Monday ticketholders – whether grounds, Clubhouse, Benefactor, The Turn or any other hospitality venue – can use their Monday tickets for the same access on Tuesday, May 7.  PLEASE NOTE: Executive Women’s Day will be held on Monday, as scheduled.
