Golf tournament delayed by an hour because of a broken-down train


SHARE THIS STORY

At U.S. Open host Chambers Bay, a train rolls by several holes of the golf course several times per day. The trains might make some noise, but they don't get in the way of play.

That wasn't the case at a golf tournament in Minnesota, where a broken-down train halted play for over an hour.

Doug Hoffmann, with the Minnesota Golf Association, posted pictures of the very long train getting in the way of two crossing paths of the golf course. Since players couldn't traverse the golf course, they had to call play since the players that could move would just eventually bunch up in trouble spots.



Eventually, the engineer solved the air leak issue and play carried on.

Hopefully, players just got on the Birdie Train the rest of the way.
