Things at the HP Byron Nelson Championship kicked off at 7:30 this morning and ended at 2:30 this afternoon. A big disappointment to folks showing up with 30 minutes left in the game.
Sean Minter says, "I didn't know that well are they going to do anything for the ticket holders as far as maybe coming back tomorrow?"
Cristina Kargozar says, "We're a little bit disappointed for him," referring to her son.
The little boy says, "They shutdown I'm sad about that."
His father Karim Kargozar says, "Usually the typical thing is when it rains out they you know let the rain settle then they come back and play it out with that many people right here so they should do that."
But tournament Chairman Charley Spradley says they wanted to ensure the safety of the fans and the players. He says, "The weather did not look nice on the radar but just happened to go south but there was no way to tell that yesterday when we had to make the decision."
David Medina says, "It kind of sucks that they're shutting the thing down hopefully they can put it back up if the weather changes."
Well, no such luck.
Aida Griffin says, "Every single year we're out here til like 5, 5:30, 6 o'clock so we just paid to park ha ha ha that's not good."
Minter adds, "Maybe they would half price tickets or honor anybody that came in late and didn't know about the climate coming in."
But Spradley says, "We got the word out immediately as best we could and i suppose had they been watching channel 33 or any of our local channels, paper, press releases they might have gotten the word."
Some professional golfers were glad to have the afternoon off.
Kevin Streelman says, "We have to go to the laundromat today my wife just got back from europe so we have to go do a bunch of laundry just the darker side of being on the road all the time."
Fred Couples says, "Gonna go to the galleria shop a little bit get the cool weather."
