Ian Poulter the English-born golfer was just saying he didn’t know how the wicker baskets used, instead of the flags at this years US Open at Merion Golf Club was going to effect his play. It didn’t take the Englishmen long at all to get used to the idea. Poulter birdied the first 3 holes he played to jump to the top of the leader-board at 3 under par.

The 113th US Open has suspended play due to severe weather that has moved into the area. Heavy rains with heavy winds and hail have placed a temporary halt to the hot streak Poulter had going. Hopefully Poulter won’t cool down too much during this weather delay.

The Englishmen seemed to really like the course set up at Merion and has to be hoping to get back to work in his quest to claim the US Open as soon as possible. The North-Eastern part of the United States has been hit with large amounts of rain over the past 24 hours.

How long Poulter will have to wait is depending on how much rain hits the course. If Merion gets hit with the amount of rain that other parts of the country have been hit with, Poulter could find himself waiting most of the day. At the time being he and the rest of the field are going to have to take cover and hope for the best.

It will give Poulter time to enjoy the 1 stroke lead he has over the rest of the guys now chasing him.
