The final practice round for the 2011 U.S. Women's Amateur is more like a survival fest -- as in trying to stay dry. It has been pouring since early this morning at Rhode Island Country Club with no let-up in sight. Our USGA agronomist on site, Jim Skorulski said the course had received three-quarters of an inch of rain as of noon. We could get more than an inch before the storm ceases. Some players, believe it or not, have gone out in the elements to play, although there is standing water on the course. Hopefully, this storm will exit the premises sometime today, so we can have quality playing conditions for Monday's first round of stroke-play qualifying. We want to see golf, not sailboat races.
