20130104-194351.jpgNasty weather conditions forced the cancellation of the first round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course at Kapalua, Hawaii earlier today. After seven holes, Webb Simpson had fought through the conditions to gain the lead at 3-under. Jonas Blixt, 1-under through five holes, was the only other player under par when play was called off. The happiest man on the island might be Scott Stallings who was 7-over through four holes.

Play resumes Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. Hawaii time with a two-tee start and an attempt to get 36 holes played.
