Viking Classic start is rained off

No play was possible today in this week's US PGA Tour event, the Viking Classic, because of a very wet course and a bad-weather forecast. Officials are hoping for better weather on Friday but they are resigned to the tournament spilling over into Monday next week at Annandale Golf Club.
Early morning rain soaked an already waterlogged golf course. The weather left pools of water on fairways and muddy conditions over the 7,199-yard layout.
The Viking Classic is the second-to-last US PGA Tour event of the season.
The final tournament is scheduled for November 12. With no tournament next week, the Viking Classic could continue into Tuesday without any knock-on effect.
