KAPALUA, HAWAII (AP) - Another day in paradise brought yet another delay to the PGA Tour’s season opener.

Gusts so strong that rules officials had a hard time walking led to at least a four-hour delay Sunday in the Tournament of Champions, the event that can’t get started. The tour’s goal was to play 18 holes _ hopefully _ followed by 36 holes on Monday.

But even as the wind was unrelenting, the prospect of a Tuesday finish entered the equation. Television became a factor, too, as the tour struggled to balance proper coverage of its winners-only event in Kapalua and the Sony Open, which starts Thursday in Honolulu.

Some players stored their clubs and wearily headed back to their hotels, a routine they know all too well.
