Rain, Rain Go Away
Washington Men's Golf Assistant Coach Garrett Clegg is in Farmingdale, New York until Friday following Nick Taylor in his quest to conquer Bethpage Black and the rest of the U.S. Open field. Clegg will be filing reports as he follows Taylor. Here is his latest report:
As you have all seen, today was completely rained out. It wasn't that there was an extraordinary amount of rain that fell today. It was a combination of steady rain with an already wet golf course. The ground was saturated and there was just no place for the water to drain so it pooled up on the greens.
Unfortunately, the forecast for the rest of the week is calling for more rain. The USGA has said that they will play until there is a 72-hole champion, even if they have to finish the tournament on Tuesday. Hopefully the rain will miss us and Nick will be able to tee off tomorrow. I am not sure when he will tee off, but it should be somewhere around 10:00 am Eastern time (7:00 am PT).
