Sony Open Under Threat of Water

Michael Thompson begins his first official day of work this year at the Sony Open, being held at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu - that is, if the weather cooperates.  Working outside does have a few disadvatages.

If you've been following the Twitter feed coming out of Hawaii for the last couple of days you'll have noticed that the practice facilties were closed due to high winds and over two inches of rain. The Pro/Am event was also canceled. The forecast for today is only slightly better.

Stephanie Wei posted the following snippet to her blog at
"According to a Tour official, the weather expert says two-three inches are expected overnight and into Thursday morning. As of now, tee times are as stands, but it all depends on the weather. I’m told that some golf will be played, it’s just a matter of when."

The official tee times and pairings came out the other day and Michael begins his first round in the ninth group of the day. He'll be teeing off from the tenth hole. Based on the current forecast, he should see some action even if he doesn't get his full round in.
