2012 Players Championship: Rain Postpones Morning Practice

Rain had been expected at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra -- the site of the 2012 Players Championship. It finally came on Tuesday at 11 a.m., hitting the course steadily for about 20 minutes and interrupting practice for about two hours. Players had temporarily evacuated the course after lighting had been detected in the area. They resumed preparations at 1 a.m.

Forecasters expect a good chance of rain for Tuesday, as well as Wednesday. But that should subside for the tournament, which begins on Thursday. Temperatures in the low 80s are expected for Thursday and little to no rain is anticipated during the four-day weekend event.

Before the rain hit, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald were among those out on the range.
