Sony Open Pro-Am canceled due to drenched greens | Events
Rain forced officials to cancel one of the more popular Sony Open events Wednesday morning.
The Sony Open Pro-Am was called off when PGA officials determined the course was not fit for play after water drenched the greens.
Sony Open spokesman Corbett A.K. Kalama said the cancellation was due to safety concerns, as well as worries about the condition of the course for tomorrow's first round.
Undoubtedly, the biggest loss was felt by the amateurs who weren't able to rub elbows with the PGA pros on Waialae's course.
"The highlight of the Pro-Am experience is being able to have pros critique your swing. And obviously the camaraderie that you develop over time. For many of these amateurs that are playing, it's people that they get to play with that they've thought about for years to come and they had their opportunity today," Kalama said.
If round one of the Sony Open had been scheduled for Wednesday, Kalama says it is unclear whether officials would have canceled it.
