Monday play

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

Due the the extensive rain stoppages to play and the torrential rain last night that left the course heavily waterlogged, the singles matches will now be rescheduled for Monday morning. This is the first time in 83 years that Ryder Cup matches will finish on a Monday.

Singles matches will take place Monday morning, beginning at 9:05am local time (4:05am U.S. ET).

Access to tomorrows matches will be restricted to those with a season pass for all days or Sunday passes. This has caused some upset amongst the fans who endured 7 hours of rain on Friday to see only a very limited amount of Ryder Cup action…

Rain Rain Rain

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Well it’s raining in Wales and the Ryder Cup is in disarray! The play has been called off for the day now and officials are trying to figure out how to re-jig the rest of the match so that play can finish by Sunday evening.

The US team are in the lead on the course but its too early to say anyingthing much yet…

The US team’s wet weather gear failed to perform, which must be an embarressment to sponsor Sun Mountain. The team abandoned the Sun Mountain waterproofs in favour of replacement jackets and pants from the on-course merchandising shop…
