    Anyone watching the PGA on NBC today

    Anyone ever played golf in these conditions (high winds and gust to 50+mph). Did anyone watch some of the first round in the rain and wind, they canceled that round and thinking today is the actual 1st round. Kucher actually had ball blow off tee 2x's.

    I've played in a constant 25-30 before and it was horrible! Anytime the wind moves your ball when you're putting, it's too windy!

    I played through a short storm with winds high enough that I had to putt a two footer sideways to make it. Best two foot putt ever! We got under cover once the rain and lightning hit, but there were branches down all over the course on our way in.

    Watching golf is irritating right now knowing I can't play for 3-4 months if I'm lucky

    Crazy conditions out there. Been flipping between that and the NFL game this afternoon. Just unthinkable that the first round has been delayed until Sunday.

    I love watching golf in these kind of conditions.

    I've never seen anything like this. Cancelling the first round two times and now probably a third. They will end up just throwing this tourney out.

    Re: Anyone watching the PGA on NBC today

    Anyone see Jason Dufner's ball in the sand trap? Couldn't even see the ball, because it was buried under all the sand due to rain and wind.

    (Not sure if it was this year or last year.... I know they were replaying last years tourney too.)

    I was playing State Center once when the wind was crazy bad. I missed a short putt so badly and a wind gust blew it like 6 inches into the cup after it stopped rolling.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
