Too Much Water, Too Little Hawaii

I had planned to look at what happened during the first round of the Sony Open today... only nothing happened.

We have too much water and not enough Hawaii for a tournament!

If you saw any pictures of the course at Waialae Country Club, you know that there was way too much casual water. (Like, several inches deep everywhere.) Apparently the nearest point of relief was somewhere in Japan, which meant rounds were going to take even longer than usual. This was unacceptable, even for the PGA Tour. (I guess they didn't have enough officials to put every pairing on the clock.)

Seriously though... the Waialae course is at sea level and, after so much rain, the course simply can't drain. The current plan is to start the first round early Friday morning and hope the rains are over. Otherwise, the tournament could run into Monday or even Tuesday and there could be big problems getting to the Hope next week since it starts on Wednesday.

So I guess we'll just have to see what happens today. Maybe somebody will discover there's dry land in Hawaii after all!
