Rainstorm in Japan turns the ZOZO Championship golf course into a torrential river.
The second round of the inaugural PGA Tour ZOZO Championship in Japan was postponed on Friday due to a severe rainstorm that swept across the Narashino Country Club in Chiba, just east of Tokyo.
Ian Poulter gave us a great view of the inundation by posting this incredible video of the 10th fairway that more closely resembles a raging river than a golf course.
Play resumes early today off two tees with Tiger Woods and Gary Woodland tied for the lead at 6-under par.
The third round will follow immediately as organisers scramble to avoid a Monday finish.

Golf course has received a staggering amount of rain today.. Under this water is the 10th fairway somewhere. You can see the green in the top of the picture. This course drains incredibly well and will be ready for us tomorrow, tee times are now between 9.30-11.30 Sorry to the fans that didn’t get to see any golf today and travelled to the course. However we will now be using Monday to finish. 👍🏼
