Tucson AZ - Snow halts Match Playhttp://www.kvoa.com/news/snow-halts-match-play/
MARANA (AP) - Already a year of wacky weather on the PGA Tour, this topped it all: snow.
The opening round of the Match Play Championship was suspended Wednesday when slush on the green gave way to snow that covered the fairways and greens at Dove Mountain and made it impossible to play. Play was called off for the afternoon because there was too much snow on the course.
The only competition turned out to be a snowball fight among the caddies outside the clubhouse, with nearly 2 inches of snow on the ground.
The round is to resume Thursday, and with only 16 matches in the second round and the number dwindling each day, it should be no trouble to get back on schedule.
2013 Schedule of Events
88th ANNUAL LA FIESTA DE LOS VAQUEROS
All events are at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds, 4823 S. 6th Ave., unless otherwise noted.
The first La Fiesta de los Vaqueros (Celebration of the Cowboys) in 1925 touted three days of events and competition. Today, the event has grown to a nine-day celebration centered on the Tucson Rodeo, one of the top 25 professional rodeos in North America.
Current and former Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) world champions are featured in each Tucson Rodeo. “The entry list for Tucson could be the ‘Who’s Who’ of pro rodeo,” boasts Gary Williams, general manager of the Tucson Rodeo. “In addition to the caliber of competition and the prize money, cowboys look forward to Tucson because the fans are great and the sky is blue. This is the first major outdoor rodeo of the year, so they’re ready for sunshine, fresh air and 11,000 fans each day cheering them on,” adds Williams.
The Tucson Rodeo Parade is billed as the world’s longest non-motorized parade. This two-hour spectacle features western-themed floats and buggies, historic horse-drawn coaches, festive Mexican folk dancers, marching bands and outfitted riders. An estimated 200,000 spectators view the parade each year.
Not only has Mother Nature essentially blanked Seattle in the snow department this winter, she's rubbing it in by bringing real winter to places that aren't supposed to have it.
Snow started falling here during a PGA golf match -- something I'm sure the organizers thought would never happen. I'd be like planning for 80 degrees during a potential Seattle Super Bowl.
