Rain forces some rescheduling at The Players

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.

Additional adjustments:

Saturday, May 4

*THE PLAYERS 5K with Donna, scheduled to take place on the back nine of THE PLAYERS Stadium Course, has been postponed. The run is now scheduled for Saturday, May 18, at 7:30 a.m. The post-race celebration will be in The Patio. For more information, contact runner relations at info@breastcancermarathon.com or 904-355-PINK.
*Golf Digest Hot List Demo Day, scheduled to take place on the driving range at TPC Sawgrass, has been cancelled. Details for a rescheduled event during the Web.com Tour Championship in September will be announced at a later date.
*Operation Shower will take place as scheduled, from 2-4 p.m., but will be held in the Sunset Room of the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse rather than in the Birdies for the Brave® Patriots' Outpost. Parking will remain in Lot 3.

Sunday, May 5

*The Military Job Fair will take place as scheduled, from 12-3 p.m., but will be held in the Ponte Vedra Room of the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse, rather than in The Turn. Parking for this event will remain in Lot 3.
*The Cinco de Mayo party hosted by YCC (Youth Crisis Center) will take place as scheduled, from 5-8 p.m. in the Stadium Village.

  • Nearly 9 months after a shooting in Northwest Jacksonville claimed the lives of Demetrius Robinson, 31, and Jennie Hawley, 34, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has made an arrest.   Gerrod Wilson, 23, is now in police custody after the Criminal Apprehension Unit located him Monday.   Wilson is charged with murder and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon in connection to the July 1st, 2016 shooting on Dekle Avenue.  Wilson's girlfriend, Charity Coleman, 24, was also arrested and she's charged for being an accessory after the fact, which is a first degree felony charge.   JSO says Coleman was arrested for that same offense back in February, when detectives say they discovered she was harboring Wilson in her apartment.   We’re told the arrests were a collaborative effort involving everyone from patrol and enforcement to the Department of Investigations and Homeland Security.
  • At the request of four Democrats in the Congress, the Government Accountability Office has agreed to formally review how much money the feds spend, and what security precautions are taken, when President Donald Trump takes a weekend away at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach, Florida. The request for a GAO review came from three Democratic Senators and one House member – the GAO says it will “review security and site-related travel expenses related to the President’s stays outside the White House at Mar-a-Lago. The lawmakers who made the request were Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM), Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). On 2/16, @RepCummings @SenWarren @SenWhitehouse & I wrote @USGAO & asked they review Mar-a-Lago security procedures & taxpayer funded travel — Tom Udall (@SenatorTomUdall) March 28, 2017 This is not new territory for the GAO, which from time to time is asked by one party or the other to review the costs of travel. When the White House was under the control of Democrats, Republicans a few years ago were the ones asking about costs – as they had the GAO look at a February 15-18, 2013 trip made by President Barack Obama. In that review, the GAO estimated that an official speech in Illinois, followed by a golf weekend in Florida, cost about $3.6 million. This GAO report will look at more than just the cost of the weekend trips to Trump’s resort in Mar-a-Lago, as it will also review security matters there. (CBSMiami/AP) — A government watchdog will investigate the taxpayer-funded travel costs of President Donald Trump’s trips to Mar-a-lago. — Liz Quirantes (@lizquirantes) March 28, 2017 Democrats raised those concerns during a trip that Mr. Trump took with the Japanese Prime Minister, when the two men were seen with aides in a public dining area, speaking about a developing national security issue with regards to North Korea. One question from the four Democrats centers on whether those who are at the Trump club have gone through normal security and clearance procedures, including any foreign nationals who might be there. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has downplayed the costs of the Mar-a-Lago visits, saying that’s ‘part of being President.’ “That is a vast reach,” Spicer told one reporter, who cast the question of the cost of the Mar-a-Lago visits, versus proposed cuts in the federal budget. Before he became President, Mr. Trump often criticized his predecessor for taking weekend golf trips to Florida and other parts of the country. While our wonderful president was out playing golf all day, the TSA is falling apart, just like our government! Airports a total disaster! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 21, 2016 The GAO will now be in charge of determining how much Mr. Trump’s own weekend getaways are costing taxpayers.
