The Idlewild Social Media Storm

When the round gets delayed for lightning the phones come out

The opening round at the Idlewild Open Friday was delayed multiple times due to a severe thunderstorm with sustained lightning, strong winds, and rain. Ultimately, round one was suspended around 6:40 p.m. just as the final Open card completed hole one. All those delays meant players and media at the event had plenty of time to take in the oncoming severe weather.

Here’s what they saw.

Ricky Wysocki was not in attendance, however. He was in Sweden instead. And despite the forest fires in the country in recent days, he was enjoying the calmer weather and made sure to let everyone know about it:
