Since the last blog entry, we had another storm delay for about 45 minutes, and have been back on the course for about 20 minutes or so. There is a line of storms that have been in the area for most of the afternoon, and there may be more stoppages ahead. As you can see from the picture, even the turtles are trying to avoid the water.
I talked with assistant coach Nicki Cutler during the latest stoppage about what the NCAA will do today and whether we will get all 72 holes in for the tournament. She informed me that they have built in Saturday as a make up day if they need one, but they will try and do what they can to fit everything in by Friday.
I wasn't a meteorology major, but the weather looks as if it will be okay for the rest of the week once this latest storm moves through.
Marina Alex and Lauren Stratton birdied their ninth hole, the 18th, and two Commodores, Megan Grehan and Anna Leigh Keith, are near or at the turn. At the moment, Vanderbilt is six-over par for their round, with the easiest nine holes still to play. VU has been very unlucky with the weather - yesterday morning, conditions were rainy and windy to start (when VU played), while the afternoon was beautiful, and today, the morning was perfect with the afternoon kicking up storms and windy conditions.
