MARANA (AP) - Already a year of wacky weather on the PGA Tour, this topped it all: snow.
The opening round of the Match Play Championship was suspended Wednesday when slush on the green gave way to snow that covered the fairways and greens at Dove Mountain and made it impossible to play. Play was called off for the afternoon because there was too much snow on the course.
The only competition turned out to be a snowball fight among the caddies outside the clubhouse, with nearly 2 inches of snow on the ground.
The round is to resume Thursday, and with only 16 matches in the second round and the number dwindling each day, it should be no trouble to get back on schedule.
