The final lap at Pebble Beach was postponed on Monday due to inclement weather

Date:

The final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am has been postponed until Monday, weather permitting, after Sunday’s start was delayed by several hours amid forecasts of more rain on a wet field and strong winds that could lead to the shortening of the first . 54-hole PGA Tour “designated event.”

Wyndham Clark signed 60 hitsa new course record, and finished Saturday with a one-shot lead over the Swede Ludwig Aberg.

The start of the final lap was initially delayed by more than two hours earlier this Sunday, and then another two-hour delay occurred. The PGA Tour ultimately postponed Monday’s round, citing inclement weather and safety concerns. Even though the game started this Sunday, it couldn’t end before nightfall.

Gary Young, chief umpire of the PGA Toursaid the priority is to play the 72 holes, even though the tournament is not one of the ‘Designated Events’ with 80 players and a purse of 20 million dollars in prizes.

The National Weather Service said wind gusts could reach 96 km/h and issued a high wind warning for the rest of Sunday. All Pebble Beach facilities remained closed. More rain is in the forecast for Monday, and it won’t take long for the field to become too heavy for play. If it is not played this Monday it will be a 54-hole tournament and Clark will win.

The last 54-hole event on the PGA Tour was the Zurich Classic in New Orleans in 2016. Pebble Beach, notorious for inclement weather, hasn’t had a 54-hole winner since Dustin Johnson in 2009.
