Video: Heavy Rain Suspends Play at WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

As we reported in this week’s weather report, thunderstorms moved in to the Akron area, delivering heavy downpours. At about 1 PM play was suspended for three hours at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The European Tour’s Twitter team posted a video update.

Englishman Andy Sullivan also provided a weather report by smart phone.

Tournament officials announced that play will resume at 4:30, and the driving range began to fill up.
