THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – The PGA Tour's new wraparound schedule hasn't thwarted the havoc that Mother Nature has wreaked on golf tournaments this year.
The Northwestern Mutual World Challenge is the latest casualty, as a predictable frost delay has pushed back opening-round tee times by one hour.
Overnight lows dipped into the low-30s Thursday morning, prompting the early delay.
Don't expect this to be a one-time deal, either. That low temperature is expected to remain consistent throughout the tournament's four days, with highs in the mid-50s during the early part of the afternoons.
