Fog at Sahalee raises questions for USGA
Friday, July 30, 2010
SAMMAMISH, Wash. – The U.S. Senior Open was delayed Friday for 2 hours and 12 minutes because of fog, placing the completion of the second round in jeopardy. The final groups off the 1st and 10th tees at Sahalee Country Club were pushed back until 4:10 p.m.
This fog delay (it has been foggy every morning this week) raises an interesting question about the upcoming 2010 U.S. Amateur, scheduled 30 miles down the road at Chambers Bay Golf Club.
Furthermore, the U.S. Open will come to Chambers Bay in 2015, and Pacific Northwest weather generally is much more questionable in the middle of June than the end of July.
