I asked the PGA Tour Vice President of Rules and Competition, Slugger White, whose here this week, about the impact of the weather and that change to the 14th hole. We had 4 and a 1/2 inches last night, which was already on a saturated golf course . So, we just did the best we could, Scott, to get it going today. Scott Abernathy and his crew did a great
