They're playing golf again at Kapalua -- for now.
When Matt Kuchar teed off on the 10th hole, the high winds knocked his ball off the tee. When he finally did hit, Kuchar was left with 97 yards on his approach. He hit 8-iron.
On the first hole, neither Rickie Fowler nor Jason Dufner reached the green in regulation. Both made bogey.
"It's a little better...very little," said PGA TOUR Vice President of Rules and Competition Slugger White. "But we're going to try to go. If we have to stop we have to stop."
The plan is to play 18 holes on Sunday with a 36-hole finish on Monday.
“It is still very windy, but it is a lot better weather today because it isn’t raining out there," said PGA TOUR rules official Jon Brendle. "Getting in 18 today will be huge and then we can play 36 tomorrow to get in 54 holes and not have to bring Tuesday into play. This is a big help to try and get this done today.”
