  • First-day play washed out at the PGA Tour opener
    KAPALUA, Hawaii — Wind squalls that howled down off the mountains above Maui were so severe Friday that PGA Tour officials scrapped the first round of the opening Tournament of Champions.
    All scores were erased — only 20 players in the 30-man field even had scores on their cards — and the round will start over today with 36 holes, weather permitting.
    Rickie Fowler and Jason Dufner, who supposedly started the 2013 season by playing in the first group, only made it through eight holes. Six players, including defending champion Steve Stricker, had not even teed off.
    It was the first time since The Players Championship in 2005 that a round had been wiped clean.
