PGA opener in jeopardy after strong winds

Plans to play 36 holes at the weather-delayed Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii - the opening event on the PGA Tour calendar - looked bleak when the scheduled re-start was pushed back due to strong winds yesterday.

Scores were scrapped on Friday because of high winds and heavy rain, while no play was possible on Saturday.

"Tuesday is not out of the realm as yet," said Slugger White of the PGA Tour. "Fifty-four holes is what we are trying to finish. I think you can determine a champion with 54 holes with no problem whatsoever; 36, I don't think so."

Ian Poulter is the only Briton in the 30-man field.
