The weather was downright awful on Saturday afternoon at The Honda Classic. Play was suspended at 12:51 p.m., then called for the day two hours later as more than 5 inches of rain were dumped on PGA National's Champion course.

Blogger Pete Pappas posted a few photos to Twitter of additional damage done at the par-5 18th.

Not only did it rain hard, including some hail, but strong winds blew down signage, including the floating scoreboard at the finishing hole. It got so bad on the green that a massive air bubble formed, which the grounds crew will obviously need to fix before Round 3 play resumes Sunday at 10 a.m.

That may well not have been an air bubble, but rather a water bubble. The repair is nothing fancy: just popping it and removing the water.
