PGA tournament in Puerto Rico rained out

March 11, 2010 at 2:42 PM

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico, March 11 (UPI) -- The first round of the PGA's Puerto Rico Open was postponed Thursday because of heavy rain.

Only 18 players were able to begin play Friday morning before play was stopped at 7:19 a.m. Officials said play will resume at 6:15 a.m. EST Friday.

About 6 inches of rain fell on the Trump International course by 2 p.m. Thursday, officials said, leaving the course unplayable.

Skip Kendall was one of nine players to finish one hole Thursday. He holed out from 159 yards for an eagle on the par-4 10th hole for the very early tournament lead. He said he couldn't see the ball go into the cup because of darkness caused by the storm.
