Miami, Florida (WiredPRNews.com) — Rows upon rows of viewers vacated a country club in Oakland Hills as they were away chased by heavy rains and dangerous weather conditions.
The first round of the 90th annual PGA championship, having started with a considerable buzz only thirteen hours earlier, had to come to an abrupt close due to heavy rains and worsening weather conditions. Only the officials standing on duty and those spectators having personal relationships with players could witness the closing of the calm evening event as all spectators had vacated the place as soon as the rain hit. Brandt Snedeker said that there were not many people present in the ground.
Many hours had passed since the players had gone to the field and made their scores in the red such as Robert Karlsson, Sergio Garcia, Ken Duke, Sean O’Hair and Billy Mayfair. Long forgotten major winners of the 70’s like Angel Cabrera, Phil Mickelson and chief talent Anthony Kim were also present. Along with the other players, long forgotten and iced up in memory banks came the dreary efforts by the players namely, Lee Westwood (77), Tommy Armour(79), Hunter Mahan (81), and K.J. Choi (78).
Justin Rose, from England said that it had been a long day and that it was difficult to keep one’s concentration centered on the game. All activity came to an abrupt halt with the foul weather, with 18 players still left to complete their rounds and many things yet to be determined.
