Okay, so, nobody has mentioned the obnoxious frequency of that stupid "Hall of Fame" song again playing this year?

I'm now in favor of the PGA losing major status so I don't have to hear the opening bars of that song every two minutes.

Ahahahaha ha!

This weather delay May last a bit. Bad storms look to be moving in and sticking around. Forecast not looking good tomorrow either. Been predicting a Monday finish all week and sticking to that prediction.

Looking more and more like Monday. PGA is now acknowledging that. Supposed to be really bad there tomorrow as well. There's a chance they may not play anymore today as the plume of rain extends all the way back to Central PA. Hopefully it clears up though. We'll see.

Just another batch of bad luck to further push the PGA Championship to #4 among majors. Feel bad, because they sure as hell set it up better than the USGA. Yeah, Oakmont had rain, but they managed to finish normal.

Tuesday finish possible.

On the positive side, this may be a chance for some to watch a final round if no one's interested in going.

There's nothing to write about folks:

Some guys were scheduled to travel Tuesday to Rio. They may have to start looking for Wednesday flights.

A shame for the PGA. They're already the "forgotten major." Then they had to move up their tourney by a few weeks because of the Olymics. And now they are gonna have people lose interest as it looks like this thing may not get finished until Tuesday. Not good.

if this was a regular PGA event, they'd have probably played the round this morning and have been done by now. Probably would tee it off again early tomorrow and maybe finish this thing on time.

Given the weather conditions and forecast I don't know why they didn't call for an early start for today.  Going to start at 7am tomorrow, weather permitting.

Especially since they preemptively suspended play before the rain actually started, it is weird (or, rather, an oversight) that they didn't start the round earlier in the day.

The PGA never does that in a major. 2005 and 2014 come to mind as two times where they could have done that and didn't. One time they got lucky, the other time they got burned. It's all about TV.

So the TV schedule looks like it's gonna be: 8AM PGA.com live stream begins, 9am TNT coverage begins up until 2PM when it of course will move to CBS, but that's obviously assuming the weather is playable tomorrow.
