SCOTTISH torrential rains at St Andrew’s course has meant play was suspended at 6.46am on Friday July 17 on the second day of the Scottish Open, and the schedule has been thrown into chaos until at least Sunday.Groundsmen struggled to clear waterlogged greens, evicting ducks and seagulls in the process, as chief executive of the course, Peter Dawson, was unable to give a time when the game could restart.Although rain had stopped by Friday mid-morning, Dawson admitted that it would be a while before the course was ready for play and told the BBC a two-tee start was not an option. “Doing a two-tee start, which is very unusual at an Open Championship… No, that is not something we are going to consider. I don’t think we will get all the players round today. The target is to catch everything up by Sunday.”Meanwhile, Tiger Woods, who was due to play at 2.56pm on Friday, gave a disappointing performance on Thursday July 16, despite teeing off in favourable conditions, while Dustin Johnson led the way as he navigated the Old Course in 65 shots.
