Statement from Confederation of Professional Golf Tournament Director, Robert Moss:
Upon arrival at Pinehurst on Tuesday 24th the courses were under approx. 5 inches of snow. Pinehurst Resort were hopeful that based upon manageable temperatures it would be possible to play 27 holes on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th.
However, looking at the forecast there was a possibility of more snow on the evening of the 25th, which was proven when a further 12 inches of snow did fall, so alternative arrangements were made with Kiawah Island to enable a switch in venue and to move all competitors there with time for practice.
The tournament continues to be three rounds but will be played across Kiawah Island’s Ocean, Osprey Point and Turtle Point Courses.
