Breakfast delay

Saturday, May 30, 2009

The start of the final match between Arkansas and Texas A&M Saturday morning to determine this year’s NCAA champion was delayed by 30 minutes.

Weather problems? No.

Frost problems? No.

Golf course problems? No.

How about this one: Breakfast delay.

There was no breakfast buffet set up for the players and they had to order off the menu, adding additional time to their morning meal.

I’ve been covering golf for more than 30 years and have been to what seems like a zillion competitive events. This one is a first.

Oh well, these are young and growing kids. They’ve got to eat.
