Last week, most the media and many commentators chastised the PGA of America for failing to move Sunday’s PGA Championship tee times up, even though weather forecasters were predicting serious thunderstorms late in the afternoon. The forecasts came true, and play had to be suspended until Monday morning. You know the rest of the story.

Well, today, the PGA has not only moved tee times up to 7:20 a.m. at the NEC, it also will be using the back nine, threesomes instead of twosomes, and split tee times. All groups should be finished by 2 p.m. Wow. Not sure if this isn’t a bit drastic. And it surely won’t help the attendance (see yesterday’s post). If you’re planning on going today, you better get there early or it will be over before you start.
