European Tour pro angry with USGA over rain delay procedure at U.S. Open

BY foxsports • June 16, 2016

Golfers who teed off early Thursday morning at the U.S. Open had to come back to the clubhouse after playing a few holes when a passing storm forced the USGA to halt play for 80 minutes.

After the rain made the course softer than it already was thanks to a Wednesday downpour, players went back out and resumed play for a half hour until thunder caused yet another delay. 

Austrian golfer Bernd Wiesberger blasted the USGA for sending players back out on the course too quickly and not allowing them to warm-up beforehand. 

Wiesberger may just have been venting after a frustrating start to his round. Through 11 holes, Wiesberger carded four bogeys and a double-bogey and sits at 5-over.
