Storm stalls gate opening at Augusta


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Overnight storms blew through north Georgia and the cleanup at Augusta National has delayed the opening of the gates for Tuesday’s practice rounds.

Wind gusts reached 20 mph early Tuesday and temperatures dropped into the 50s because of the storm. The forecast for the rest of the week, however, is favorable with little chance of rain and relatively calm winds.

The gates were scheduled to open at 8:45 a.m.
