High winds in Maui have prevented play from starting at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
(John Bush/PGA TOUR)
With play still not under way at Kapalua, players have had plenty of time to share their thoughts (and images) from the season-opener. Here's a sampling of some of the best.
30 players just want to play some golf. 30-50MPH winds stopping us from Starting. Crazy. Such a shame.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 6, 2013
My caddy just said don't know what to do shall we get some lunch..@terrymundy it's 8.30 in the morning. I know it's been long day already.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 6, 2013
With all these delays it gives me more time to focus on pre round warm up. twitter.com/kylestanleygol…— Kyle Stanley (@kylestanleygolf) January 6, 2013
Gonna be a long day!!! #betterlatethannever— Dustin Johnson (@DJohnsonPGA) January 6, 2013
I say let us play golf in the wind, better for tv. Golf balls blowing around on the greens will get the viewers & ratings for tv! #urwelcome— bubba watson (@bubbawatson) January 6, 2013
I feel sorry for Hyundai great tournament great course & all we want to do is play some golf. But 50MPH gusts it isn't possible.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 6, 2013
I'm not sure that's breaking news. It's blowing 40!! twitter.com/Keegan_Bradley…— Keegan Bradley (@Keegan_Bradley) January 6, 2013
40 mins to the first tee shot being struck & nobody has moved to the range yet. Players instinct. Not looking good.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 6, 2013
I wish I owned a wind farm on this Maui, I would have made a fortune the last couple of days. 45 mins to tee off nobody moving anywhere.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 6, 2013
Might be a tee time at the end of that rainbow. instagr.am/p/UHRl0DJg03/— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) January 5, 2013
