The opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship was suspended at 11:07 a.m. local time due to snow. UPDATE: Shortly after 1:00 p.m., play was called for the day. It is scheduled to resume at 8:30 a.m. local time on Thursday.
This was a possibility given the elevation of the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain. A temperature in the 40s and wind greeting the early starters. As Steve Stricker began his round, it was raining, but the precipitation changed to snow as the air cooled. He's 2 up on Henrik Stenson after just two holes. Ten matches have yet to begin. In his presser on Tuesday, Stricker relayed that the discomfort he experienced at Kapalua was due to a herniated C5 disc. "I got a cortisone shot (in his back) that same week," he said. "And really from that point on, I've been feeling good. And I've done a lot of physical therapy, a lot of strengthening of my back and left side, and I feel really strong. No pain at all anymore in my butt or down my leg. So it's been good, knock on wood, and hopefully continue down that road of maintenance." Feb. 20 - 1:19 pm et
