A tornado forced the cancellation of Thursday's practice round of the Senior PGA Tours Allianz Championship in Des Moines, IA.
 
A funnel cloud formed and moved across the Glen Oaks Country Club around 3:30 p.m., according to witnesses. Some scoreboards and several tree limbs were knocked down, as was a merchandise tent on a hill. The roof covering two of the skyboxes overlooking the 18th green was also ripped off.
 
Tournament officials said the damage would not delay the start of the tournament.
