The Barclays Scottish Open has been cut from 72 to 54 holes for the first time in its history after torrential rain prevented any play before 3pm at the earliest at Castle Stuart near Inverness today.
Storm had prevented half of the 156-strong field from completing their second rounds yesterday and conditions have worsened overnight.
In fact the rain was so bad overnight that no members of the public were allowed entrance to the flooded car parks this morning.
Even if play was able to resume in mid-afternoon no crowd was going to be allowed on five holes – the first, second, 10th, 11th and 12th down by the Moray Firth – because of the state of the walkways.
