Golf: Long, soggy weekend in store at Presidents Cup
COLUMBUS (AFP) - United States (US) and Internationals golfers were looking at a long and soggy weekend at the Presidents Cup, which resumed on Friday at Muirfield Village following heavy rain and a severe thunderstorm.
Six alternate-shot foursomes matches were halted by the downpour, which dumped 2.08cm of rain on the course in about 90 minutes.
After the deluge, drenched workers tried to clear puddles from bunkers and standing water off greens with varying degrees of success.
After a delay of two hours and 36 minutes, players returned under "lift, clean and place" rules with the US team leading in three matches, the Internationals ahead in two and another all square.
