NCAA Golf: Whether the weather

By Weinman - At 1:10 p.m., the horn went off to indicate lightning in the area. While storms have peppered the Nashville area this morning, Bowling Green has remained largely unscathed. During my lunch break (try the homemade chips!) with photographer John Russell, however, officials were forced to halt play. All of the Commodores are through at least eight holes (with Jon Curran almost done on 18, his ninth hole).

Groups are bunching up on the 14th hole, where a short par-4 (since these guys consider 331 yards a short par-4) is encouraging players to go for the green off the tee. A miss short or right puts the player in deep rough hitting to the short side of a fast green, while a shot to the left is likely to funnel into a deep pot bunker.
