OAKVILLE, Ontario – The threesome of Lee Janzen, Nathan Green and Cliff Kresge had better not have early dinner reservations tonight. Due to the lengthy weather delay at the Canadian Open, they are scheduled to tee off the 10th hole at – get this – 8:40 p.m. EST.
So are Nick O’Hern, Bill Haas and Jeff Overton off the first tee. If the weather holds up and they do tee off “on time,” there’s a good chance that darkness could delay play and force them to hole out in the morning nearly 12 hours later. Now that’s what I call slow play.
