The Limerick Summary: Viking Classic

Tournament cancelled due to unplayable conditions

Unfortunately for the residents of Madison MI―and the PGA Tour players still struggling to make the top 125―old Mama Nature declared a bye week. After receiving around 20 inches of rain in as many days, the Annandale Golf Club was declared unplayable and the Viking Classic, cancelled. Al Osteen, the man in charge of preparing the course, said Saturday that it would be Thursday before any golf could be played... and that was if the weather cooperated. (The course had received nearly 2 more inches of rain Friday night.)

Therefore, Saturday morning, Slugger White and his PGA Tour crew decided (rightfully so) to cancel the tournament. For those of you who didn't see any footage of the waterlogged course on Saturday, it reminded me more of a rice paddy than a golf course... and the Annandale team worked their butts off to get it looking that good. Kudos to them for all their hard work...

But when Mama Nature sets herself against you, you just have to "go with the flow."
The birdie of choice was a ducky
As a flood turned the golf course all mucky.
Even if the guys waded,
They couldn’t have played it;
Guess the bubble boys just got unlucky.
