The forecast at Kapalua’s Plantation Course continues to plague the 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions with strong winds and gusts up to 50mph. Not much has changed from Friday when the PGA Tour’s season-opener was supposed to kick off. For the third day in a row, play was delayed, suspended, and eventually called at 12:12pm on Sunday.

The Question Mark making a run

What’s perhaps the most compelling story to come out of the Valero Texas snooze-fest Open has gone widely unnoticed, but thanks to Shoshana for bringing it to my attention. John Huh, the Q-school grad who captured the Mayakoba Golf Classic, shot a dreadful eight-over 44 in his opening nine holes on Thursday, but 45 holes later, he’s in contention.
