Accenture Match Play’s winter wonderland won’t delay final

leave a comment »

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you; that’s actually snow on the ground in Marna, Ariz., where Martin Kaymer and Luke Donaldo are expected to tee off on time in Sunday’s final.

The photo, posted by Nick Faldo earlier this morning, shows a winter wonderland of sorts for the Saguaro Desert, a sight you probably don’t see too often. Apparently, the course got an inch of snow overnight, but the good news is it should be gone by this afternoon.

According to the Associated Press, the course is supposed to be mowed prior to today’s 12:25 p.m. final, which means they obviously expect all of the white stuff to be gone by then. I know players wouldn’t have been happy playing in the snow, but how crazy would it have be to have those guys pipe one down the middle and spend the next 10 minutes looking for their ball? Each hole would probably take 20-25 minutes to finish, so maybe it’s not such a good idea.
