PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – When the weather-warning horn blew at 1:02 p.m. (ET) at The Players Championship , the first weather delay at the event since 2005, Angel Cabrera had taken a drop from the water hazard on the 18th hole, a rare blemish for the Argentine on Day 3.
Through 17 holes Cabrera was 6 under par and had moved into a tie for 12th before his second shot from the right rough at the last found the water. Not bad for a guy who wasn’t sure he could even start this week following surgery to repair a tear in his lower intestines last week in Charlotte, N.C.
“H could have had eight birdies through nine holes,” said Charlie Epps, Cabrera’s longtime swing coach. “He’s feeling good, it’s just uncomfortable and he’s not 100 percent.’
Hail accompanied the storm that swept over TPC Sawgrass and players were bracing for a long delay.
“We’re get in as much as we can today and come back tomorrow. We’ll probably have a two-tee start (for the final round) tomorrow,” said Tour official Mark Russell.
