Friday night's heavy rain made it an early morning for grounds crews at Highland Meadows. They had to the get course in shape for the third round of the Marathon Classic.
Spectators at the tournament are keeping a close eye on the players…and the radar.
"If they quit playing because of the rain, I'm going to go home," said spectator Bob Mell.
The slight chance for showers had some people worried at the course, including the tournament director.
"That's just bad luck, when a thunderstorm does that, because what happens is everyone goes home," says tournament director Judd Silverman. "We wait it out, and the players go back on the course to finish, and there's nobody here."
So far, there has not been a need for a rain delay, but Friday night's storm dumped more than 3 inches on the golf course.
"I was grateful that it was raining in the middle of the night, and now look at this, perfect," says Silverman.
But it wasn't that way early Saturday morning.
"There were a few puddles out there this morning and some really wet areas," says course superintendent Dan Salios.
Ground crews started working around 5 a.m. to fill in puddles with dirt in the most heavily trafficked areas of the course.
"We used a squeegee product that pushes the water and gets it out of the holes and into the drains, and we also use pumps to get the extra water out of the traps," says Salios.
He says golfers may have a tougher time with the course's softer condition.
"The ball is not going to roll as far in the fairways for them, so it might be challenging," he says.
But spectators Bob and Shirley Mell were thankful for the storms.
"I thought that if it rained it would make it a little bit cooler," says Bob.
"I'm glad today is cool and cloud covered," says Shirley. "That's better than the hot sun."
It's safe to say that even the rain can't put a damper on the Marathon Classic.
