Bad weather at Doral
Wow there’s a big storm hitting Doral right now. Trees are blowing over and it is raining sideways. Even the hospitality tents are close to flying away, as Graeme McDowell put it. Play has been delayed an estimated three hours.
Quote of the day comes from Geoff Ogilvy:
“Here I am, having a wonderful morning, with a one foot putt for double on my first hole, and they blow the siren.”
Kelly Tilghman on the weather:
“Our towers at 8 and 9 have been blown away.”
“There are tv towers in bunkers, the main scoreboard has blown over, the course will take a little while to get ready, hope we get out there.”
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell have yet to tee off.
