A list of notable weather events to disrupt PGA Tour events since 2000:
2000 Williams World Challenge: Hail covered the course in Thousand Oaks, California, but that didn’t keep Phil Mickelson from chipping in for birdie over the hailstones while standing on the 18th green.
2004 Accenture World Match Play: Round two in Carlsbad, California, was postponed when flash flooding turned fairways at LaCosta into rivers.
2004 Zurich Classic of New Orleans: Heavy rains forced the tournament to end on Monday, with Vijay Singh emerging as the winner.
2005 Buick Invitational: San Diego’s fabled marine layer pushed inland over Torrey Pines and forced a four-hour fog delay during the second round.
2005 Southern Farm Bureau Classic: After Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Louisiana/Mississippi border, it blew through the Jackson, Mississippi, area, uprooting trees and damaging the course at Annandale Golf Club. The tournament was delayed a month.
2007 Verizon Heritage: A storm raging along the east coast blew sand out of bunkers, bent flagsticks sideways and blew golf balls off greens, forcing a high wind suspension during the fourth round.
2009 Viking Classic: Same tournament, different name near Jackson, Mississippi, was canceled by heavy rain that made the course unplayable.
2010 Zurich Classic of New Orleans: Lightning split a tree during a weather delay, blowing cypress splinters all over the 11th green.
2011 Accenture Match Play: Over an inch of snow covered the high desert course in Marana, Arizona, outside Tucson, then gave way to hail.
2011 Cadillac Championship: A heavy line of thunderstorms raked Doral in Miami, knocking a TV tower into a lake near the ninth hole.
2012 Humana Challenge: Play was suspended during the third round in Palm Springs, California, knocking down trees and kicking up sandstorms.
