Jacksonville, FL - Due to the heavy rains in Northeast Florida, The Players is having to reschedule many of the events planned for next week. Here is all the guidance we are getting from the The Players Championship:
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (May 3, 2013) - Due to heavy rains that have brought more than 5 inches to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass over the past 36 hours, tournament and PGA TOUR officials have adjusted the event schedule in order to allow the course to drain properly, minimize any damage that would affect the competition and give the course maintenance team as much time as possible to prepare the golf course once the storm conditions subside. Most notably, THE PLAYERS Championship will not be open to fans on Monday, May 6. All Monday ticketholders - whether grounds, Clubhouse, Benefactor, The Turn or any other hospitality venue - can use their Monday tickets for the same access on Tuesday, May 7. PLEASE NOTE: Executive Women's Day will be held on Monday, as scheduled.
