Tropical storm Henri jeopardizes the first stage of the PGA Tour season as it delays the play for the second day in a row.

Tropical storm Henri lashed across the North-Eastern side of America over the weekend affecting a very large population; leaving them stranded without power and a threat of potential flooding.

Tropical storm Henri affected the Northern Trust Tournament as well which was held at the Liberty National Golf Club, Jersey City, New Jersey. It also impacted the final round of the FedEx cup event along with the endnote of the first stage of the PGA Tour which was postponed twice because of the heavy rainfall prediction.

According to the PGA Tournament website, the course ground receives as much as 6 inches of rain within two days resulting in postponing of the game.

The PGA Tournament released an official statement stating

“accommodations have been made to allow the full 72 holes’ to be played at the northern trust to have a final winner.”

The PGA Tour website stated

“the commissioner decided to modify the Bad Weather Guidelines as outlined in the PGA tour Tournament Regulations. The commissioner has the authority to modify a Regulation if he deems it in the interest of the game of golf, the host organizations, the public or the players.”

“As such, for the Northern Trust, BMW Championship, and Tour Championship, play will be allowed to extend beyond Monday as is deemed necessary to complete 72 holes of competition., without regard to how much play is completed on Monday. This modification is consistent with the Tournament Regulation already in effect for the Players Championship.”

This statement also indicated that because of the weather, there will be no fans at the venue while the final day of play is in procession.

“With more rain forecasted throughout the day on Monday, including a possible afternoon thunderstorm, officials determined that contesting the final round without spectators on site would be the safest path moving forward,”

stated the PGA Tour.
