Wind knocking over large trees at PGA Tour event


Last weekend’s Farmers Insurance Open has been plagued by terrible weather that seems to have culminated in the toppling of trees. The tournament was postponed on Sunday, and was scheduled to finish play on Monday. Unfortunately, there were still issues on Monday when the players went to the course to resume.

The overnight weather was so bad that the wind ultimately knocked over trees, including a pretty large one. Check it out for yourself below.

This is why the tournament will not restart at 8 today.

Imagine if this one right of 8 came down while spectators on the course. John Strege here to provide scale.
