So the 2013 Golf Season Starts When?

It's a good thing the NFL playoffs started this weekend because we're still waiting for golf. I saw both the Houston Texans beat the Cincinnati Bengals AND the Green Bay Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings. (I even got to see Manchester United squeak out a tie against West Ham in the FA Cup third round. Yes, I had a busy Saturday. ;-)

The reason for the delay? Wind. The sideways rain might not have been such a problem if not for the 40-50mph wind gusts. I snagged this photo off GC that shows the conditions. Look at them try to pour water into a cup!

When the wind is stronger than gravity, it's not a good day for golf.

At any rate, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions is now a 54-hole event, with 36 holes planned for today and 18 tomorrow. I suppose that's subject to change, depending on the weather. The word from the Tour was that today's wind would only be 5-10mph slower. I can only assume they believe the course will be playable in 30-40mph gusts.

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Dustin Johnson remarked that he's done well in these shortened events, and I have to concur. I'm guessing either he or Webb Simpson (who played well in Friday's cancelled round) will -- pardon the pun -- blow away the competition.

And if they don't get to play today... well, at least there are two more NFL games scheduled.
