PHOTOS: Masters Monday cut short due to severe weather

So, Monday at the 2017 Masters wasn’t the most action-packed day.

We’re still three days from competitive action, but there wasn’t much of any golf on Monday, as weather interfered heavily with the first practice round of the year’s opening major.

The breakdown: Augusta National officials closed the course shortly before noon local time as thunderstorms approached the area. Augusta National was re-opened around 1:45 p.m. before being closed again, this time for the day, around 2:30 p.m. due to more impending severe weather.

It turned out to be a good precaution, as heavy rains heaved down at times Monday, and the area came under a tornado warning at one point.

Anyway, it was a gloomy Monday weather-wise at Augusta. Here’s a taste of how the day looked in photos:
