For 2nd time in as many months, a round on Tour is scrubbed before it can start
0: Number of holes played Thursday in the PGA Tour’s Mayakoba Golf Classic as rain and thunderstorms prevented the start of the first round at El Camaleon Golf Club at Mayakoba Resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It was the second time in as many months that a round on the PGA Tour was suspended without any play. The second round of the Zozo Championship was suspended because of inclement weather last month in Japan. The Zozo required a Monday finish. Play at Mayakoba was scheduled to begin this morning (tee times).
9: Number of birdies in a 9-under 63 for South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen, who raced to a three-stroke lead in the first round of the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa. Oosthuizen, who has posted five top-10 results in eight appearances but has yet to win what is known as “Africa’s major,” played bogey-free golf at Gary Player Country Club. Belgium’s Thomas Detry was second at 66, followed by Italy’s Guido Migliozzi at 67. South Africans Ernie Els and Zander Lombard shared fourth place with England’s Lee Westwood at 68 (scores). The tournament is the penultimate event on the European Tour’s 2018-19 schedule and the seventh of eight tournaments on the Rolex Series of $7 million-plus events.
