Rain wreaks havoc on Nissan Open

Posted: Sunday, February 20, 2005

LOS ANGELES — Heavy rain that flooded bunkers and covered the greens with thousands of worms forced officials to cancel golf Saturday in the Nissan Open, raising the possibility of the PGA Tour's first 36-hole event in nearly nine years.

Some rain is in the forecast Sunday, with more heavy showers expected Monday. The Match Play Championship, a $7.5 million World Golf Championship, is scheduled to start Wednesday down the coast at La Costa.

Brian Davis of England has not hit a shot since he opened with a 65 for the first-round lead on Thursday. Only half the 144-man field completed the second round Friday, with Chad Campbell at 9-under 133 and leading Robert Allenby by three shots.
