The USGA has its hands full trying to protect the players and the fans at the 113th U.S. Open. Heavy rains, lightning and hail are all part of this storm headed to Merion this morning. The main concern of the USGA are the 60 MPH winds that this storm is packing.

There are a lot of tented facilities around the golf course that make it possible to telecast this event. The USGA is concerned about the tents being blown all over the course. The Storm has dumped over 3 inch’s of rain over some cities in the North East.

If those heavy rains hit Merion Golf Club, it  is difficult to predict how long of a delay the players will face at this years US Open. The players have already started teeing off and the USGA is watching this storm that is expected to arrive within the next 2 hours.

Phil Mickelson has made it back by betting the storm and has already started his first round in the 113th US Open. We will keep our eyes in the weather. Heavy rain and high winds are expected.
