Well, this certainly wasn’t one of Bubba Watson’s finer moments. Watson, who was leading at the time, tried to hit a 9-iron into the wind on the par-3 16th and dunked it in the water. He turned to his caddie, Ted Scott, and said, “Water. It’s in the water. That club.”
Then, Watson took a drop and his next shot went over the green and he said, “You’re going to tell me that’s the right yardage?!?”
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 new (tentative) plan? To return on Monday morning and play 36 holes and 18 on Tuesday. The goal is to complete 54 holes — otherwise it’ll count as an “unofficial” event, meaning it won’t count as an “official” win and the champion won’t get the chance to defend his title in 2014, but it will reward “official FedExCup points/money/75% OWGR points. In other words, it would cause more harm to the already endangered venue for the event. Which would really suck.
