All up over the three days there was five weather notices and with two of those evacuation warnings for players to leave the course and patrons to vacate the premises.
On Monday at the start of official practice there was two delays due to the threat of lightning but near 3pm local time officials sounded a tornado warning that fortunately just missed the course but left a trail of destruction less than a mile down the northern end of Washington Road.
Then tomorrow just 26 of the 94 competitors got to tee-up in the annual Par 3 Contest.
