2012 PGA Tournament: South Carolina Weather Could Be Issue

In what could be a taste of long and wet weekend, Tuesday practice rounds for the 2012 PGA Championship were cut short by a downpour of rain.

With the tournament being held on Kiawah Island in South Carolina, located alongside the Atlantic Ocean, wind and rain could be as tough an opponent as any of the world's top golfers this weekend:

A mixture of rain, thunderstorms, lightning and gusts up to 30 mph (48.28 kph) have been forecast for the year's final major which starts on Thursday with conditions expected to ease for Sunday's final round.

As a result, there will almost certainly be suspensions of play throughout the weekend. That will put a premium on the ability to quickly find your swing again after walking off the course, as players able to be comfortable without a set routine could have a huge advantage.
