Sports log: Tournament of Champions is on hold

Golf

For those who think the PGA Tour season never ends, here’s a new twist: This one can’t get started. The season-opening Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, was postponed for the second straight day because of gusts that topped 40 m.p.h. and made it impossible to play golf. Unlike the previous day when 24 players managed to tee off, no one hit a shot Saturday on the Plantation Course. Players arrived in darkness and never got farther than the practice range. Play was delayed three times before it was called for the day. The season now starts Sunday with hopes of playing 36 holes, followed by an 18-hole finish Monday. It will be the first time the Tournament of Champions is reduced to 54 holes since 1997, when Tiger Woods beat Tom Lehman in a playoff when a par 3 at La Costa was the only hole that could be used because of so much rain.
