Jacqueline BendrickKELOWNA, British Columbia (Gord Montgomery/iG) — On Day 2 of the inaugural GolfBC Championship in usually sunny Kelowna, the weather was fit for neither man nor beast. Ducks? Well yeah, they may have liked it.

From the early tee times on, the rain fell, sometimes lightly but at other times monsoon-like as players, and officials, battled to keep things on track. In fact at one point it got so bad, just after the afternoon wave of players had teed off, that everyone was called in off the scenic Gallagher’ Canyon Golf & Country Club’s fairways and greens as a deluge, lasting about 15 minutes and including some hail, hammered the area.

The weather delay ate up well over two-plus hours as after the storm passed the grounds crew had to mop up the standing water all around the course.
