By now you have probably heard that, beginning this season, the Web.com Tour is moving their events from Thursday-Sunday to Sunday-Wednesday. What you might not have known though, is that the season got underway yesterday under some less than ideal playing conditions.
For those that might have missed it with the playoff NFL game and final round of the PGA Tour’s SBS Tournament of Champions on, the Web.com Tour kicked off its season in the Bahamas at The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay. As of publication, only 10 of the 131 golfers that teed it up were even par or better, with only one of those 10 having completed his round. 16 golfers shot rounds of 85 or worse and three shot 90 or worse. This is what happens when a golf tournament is played in conditions that left many wondering if they should have even been out there playing.
Now, we have come to expect windy and blustery conditions at the Open Championship. At the season opener on the Web.com Tour? Not so much. However, most of the golf played Sunday was played in winds upwards of 30 miles an hour.
This isn’t the first time that the Web.com Tour has run into weather problems as of late. As we all remember, the final event of the playoff was cancelled at the end of last season due to Hurricane Matthew.
