Strong winds and heavy rain prevented any of the 68-man field getting out of the clubhouse so the first threesome is set to tee off from 7.30am local time on Monday morning.
Strong winds are again expected at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Monday, though, with long-hitting American Dustin Johnson holding a four-shot lead over Canadian Mike Weir.
At least 50 per cent of the players would have to complete the final round for it to count, organisers said.
“Hopefully see if we can get the golf tournament in,” PGA Tour vice-president of rules and competition Mark Russell said. “I don’t think the wind is going to be as strong tomorrow morning.
“We’re mandated by the regulations to do everything we can to play 72 holes, so we’re going to see what we can do tomorrow.
If we find that we’re not going to be able to finish tomorrow, we’ll make a decision at that time.”
Congratulations are in order for Tiger and Elin Woods who just announced the birth of their son Charlie Axel Woods. Tiger, in a statement on his website, said that little Charlie was born on Sunday February 8, 2009. It is the couple’s second child following the birth of daughter Sam Alexis in June 2007 on the day after the U.S. Open.
Woods further stated taht “Both Charlie and Elin are doing great and we want to thank everyone for their sincere best wishes and kind thoughts. Sam is very excited to be a big sister and we feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful family”. “I also want to thank our doctors, nurses and the hospital staff for their personal and professional care. We look forward to introducing Charlie to you at the appropriate time, and again thanks from all of us for your kindness and support.”
The 33-year-old Woods is a six-time winner of the Buick Invitational, where he also won the U.S. Open last summer for his 14th career major. That was the last tournament he has played because of knee surgery a week later that ended his 2008 season. He is expected to return before the Masters, possibly as early as the Accenture Match Play Championship on Feb. 25.
Congrats Again Mr. & Mrs. Woods!!!
Tight England bowling restricted the West Indies to just 47 runs for the loss of two wickets in the middle session as the West Indies went to tea on 271-5.
Resuming from the lunch break on 224-3, the West Indies struggled for runs and before long they lost century maker Ramnaresh Sarwan for 107 with the score at 235. The little stroke maker chopped on to his stumps a delivery from Andrew Flintoff which was much too close to his body.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who resumed on nought, found it difficult to get the old ball away, but after England captain Andrew Strauss took the new ball and with Chanderpaul on 20, he was adjudged leg before wicket to Stuart Broad bowling from the southern end. After a brief consultation with batting partner Brendon Nash, Chanderpaul asked for the television referral, but the TV umpire upheld the on field umpire’s decision and Chanderpaul was forced to go with the score on 254.
Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin joined Nash and the two pushed the score along with Ramdin unleashing three crisp offdrives in his total of 14 from 13 deliveries. Nash is not out nine.
Broad continues to be the pick of the bowlers with three for 55 from 19 overs
