It’s been an interesting — perhaps the better word is “strange” — turn of events this weekend at the PGA Championship. With play suspended due to inclement weather in the area around 2pm Saturday, only 37 players finished the third round, with around 50 either still on the course or yet to tee off, including the last 5 groups (i.e. top 10 players on the leaderboard).
Players and media questioned the PGA of America’s decision to *not* start the third round with threesomes teeing off both nos. 1 and 10, given the forecast Saturday looked extremely questionable with a high chance of thunderstorms. However, PGA of America Championships Officer (set-up man) Kerry Haigh defended the decision, claiming that the weather was supposed to be similar to the first two rounds.
