Insperity Invitational first round postponed by weather

bernhard langer

The first round of the Insperity Invitational was washed out Friday due to an accumulation of rain on the course at The Woodlands (Texas) Country Club.

The new plan is for the field to play 36 holes on Saturday, with the first round teeing off at 7 a.m. local time at the course outside Houston.

PGA Tour Champions rules official Brian Claar said the course had seen almost 12 inches of rain in a 36-hour period before the tournament was set to tee off Friday morning.

“There’s no place for it to go. We just can’t get the course in shape,” Claar told reporters.

Now tournament officials will attempt to fit three rounds of golf into two days. A Monday finish was an unlikely option because next week’s tournament, the Regions Tradition in Birmingham, Ala., is the first major of the season and therefore contested over 72 holes beginning Thursday.

At the Insperity, Germany’s Bernhard Langer is scheduled to make his return to competition three months after rupturing his left Achilles tendon. Langer, 66, is the winningest player in PGA Tour Champions history (46) and a four-time winner of the Insperity Invitational.
