June 21, 2013, (ISN) – “Following our consultation with various organizations, we have decided to postpone further play today at the ATB Financial Classic presented by TELUS.
With the surrounding communities affected by flooding and the golf course saturated from the excessive rain, we have determined it would be in the best interest of players, volunteers, staff and most importantly the surrounding community to cancel play today. Through discussions with the sponsors, tournament organization and golf course staff, we plan to proceed tomorrow with the tournament, which would become a 36-hole competition and would carry over scores recorded so far. It is expected the tournament will conclude on Sunday evening. I applaud the players who have expressed interest in helping out in the community in any way possible. Our thoughts are with the families and communities affected by the flooding throughout Alberta.”
