SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Some 40 pros were unable to finish their first day rounds at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am due to weather, with more rain on the way.
“It’s tough for the organizers,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew after a day on the course as an observer. Unlike most tournaments, the AT&T schedules golfers on three different courses: Pebble Beach, Monterey Peninsula and Spyglass Hill.
“If you were playing Monterey Peninsula yesterday and you’re playing Spyglass today,” John said, “then you have to go Monterey Peninsula and finish yesterday’s round, and then go to Spyglass and play today’s round.”
Madden for one doesn’t mind the weather.
“One good thing about a rainout — just in life you know when you get a rainout — that means you can’t do anything. It’s a good hang. Everyone at the same time can’t do anything, so no one does anything except hang out and tell stories. And I love that. That’s my favorite part.” (6:55)
