Play started as scheduled for the much anticipated Tiger Woods filled Ryder Cup, but was suspended after conditions proved too treacherous for those tough golfers.

Personally, I think playing golf in rainy, awful conditions would make it a bit more bearable. Watching golf on TV is about as much fun as a Rosie O’Donnell sex tape.

The Ryder Cup, however, adds that international intrigue which makes it worthwhile.

As long as they are actually playing.

Heavy rain pelted Celtic Manor Friday morning, but play went off as scheduled. After about two hours of action, the decision was made to stop play when the course was deemed unplayable.

Officials had both the fairways and greens squeegeed due to standing water and the four-ball action was contested under preferred lies. It became too much when Steve Stricker couldn’t find anywhere dry to place his ball on the fourth fairway. Via Sports Network

So far, Europe is off to a good start with Lee Westwood and PGA Champion Martin Kaymer  2-up through five holes against Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson in the first match.

Rory McIlroy and U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell, both from Northern Ireland, are 1-up against Matt Kuchar and Stewart Cink in match two.

Tiger Woods, playing for the first time as a captain’s pick, and Stricker lost the third hole to fall 1-down to Ian Poulter and Ross Fisher.
