Shell Houston Open Off to a Slow Start

Lightning puts an end to round one of the Shell Houston Open
by Roz Roberts III

During round one of the Shell Houston Open, the skies opened up and put an end to round one for the day when both lightning and large amounts of water made the course unplayable.    More than half the field had not finished round one and many hadn't even teed off yet.  Michael Thompson's day ended before he could tee off on hole #18 - the most difficult on the course.  At the time Michael was sitting at 3 over par, well off the pace as he wasn't able to get anything going.  But today is a different day.  He finished round one with a solid par on the difficult eighteenth hole and now he's waiting for his second round tee time which is currently scheduled for 6:10pm local time.  Since the sun will set at 7:39pm he won't be able to finish round two until Saturday morning.

Tee Times
Michael will once again be paired with Marco Dawson and Sunghoon Kang.  The group is scheduled to start round two at 6:10pm local time from the tenth hole.

Television Times 
 Round two will be covered on the Golf Channel from 3pm - 6pm ET.
