Organisers had hoped to play round one of the tournament on Saturday after high winds forced its cancellation on Friday, but the poor conditions had not abated and the decision was taken to push play back to Sunday morning.

Webb Simpson was leading on three under after seven holes when play was stopped, but all the players will begin from scratch when the weather allows to tournament to get under way properly.

Organisers said the tournament would be cut to 54 holes, with 36 due to be played on Sunday and 18 on Monday, with the weather forecast considerably better for the area.

Slugger White, the PGA Tour's vice president of rules and operations, told the tour's website: "I went out there this morning about 6:30 (am).

"I dropped a ball on the 10th green, on the back of the green just dropped it and (it) rolled off 20 yards off the front of the green. We did have balls that were going uphill on 10 a foot and a half."
