So a funny thing happened in the Arizona desert today. (Pro writing tip: desert has one S, while dessert has two S’s like strawberry shortcake. Now you know!) A snowstorm broke out and delayed the first round of the Accenture Match Play Championship. It eventually got so bad; the rest of the first day was scrapped. Big time guys like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy didn’t see the, er, Frozen Tundra. Excuse me, but how does that happen? Forget the fact that you can’t control the weather. Believe me, I am a semi-intelligent person. I think I can wrap my head around the fact that you can’t stop a snowstorm. But the question is, why is this event held at this course? If there is the possibility of snow delaying the tournament, why not relocate to somewhere warmer? Or move the tournament forward a couple of months when this is a non-issue? This is the second time in three years that this tournament has been affected by snow. Let’s forget all the fans that took off work and showed up today, only to see very little golf. The most tragic thing was I had to go back to work! Bummer. Look PGA Tour, I know we can’t stop thunderstorms or high winds. But could we at least take snow out of the equation moving forward. According to my amateur meteorology skills, snow occurs when it is cold. SCIENCE. Let’s play golf instead of making snowmen and drinking hot toddies. Well, okay, a hot toddy does sound good…See you tomorrow.
