KAPALUA, Hawaii – Mark Wilson got off to a good start Monday in the Tournament of Champions. Then again, just starting was good.
Three days behind schedule because of high wind, the PGA Tour finally got its 2013 season started on the day its first tournament was supposed to finish. Wilson played bogey-free at Kapalua for a 4-under 69.
That gave him a one-shot lead over five players, including Rickie Fowler, who made history by hitting the year's opening tee shot three times.
The opening round was scrapped on Friday and Sunday because of gusts topping 40 mph, and no one could play Saturday.
The players had about 30 minutes for lunch before going back out for 18 more holes, followed by an 18-hole finish Tuesday to put this wacky event in the books.
