KAPALUA, HAWAII (AP) - For those who think the PGA Tour season never ends, here’s a new twist: This one can’t get started.

For the second straight day, the Tournament of Champions was postponed Saturday because of gusts topping 40 mph that made it impossible to play. Some holes on the back nine are so exposed that when officials dropped a golf ball on the green, it actually rolled up uphill.

The tournament was supposed to begin Friday. The plan is to play 36 holes Sunday and get in 54 holes by Monday afternoon, making it likely that the Tournament of Champions will be decided over 54 holes for the first time since 1997 when it was at La Costa.

Unlike Friday, when 24 players at least teed off, no one hit a shot on the Plantation Course on Saturday.
