>> Have been asked to evacuate the property.>> The famous Augusta National Golf Course evacuated Wednesday due to extreme weather ahead of the US Masters Golf Tournament. I'm Reuters sports correspondent Roy Carroll in Augusta, Georgia, where the US Masters Golf Tournament is scheduled to be on Thursday. Course is closed on Wednesday due to high winds, very wet conditions, a big storm that included a tornado warning.
The thunder and lightening is supposed to pass in time for Thursday, but the high winds could persist, making an already challenging course that much more difficult. Practice play was suspended, but fans and spectators are still hoping to catch some of the action.>> I said it sucks, we have been trying to get tickets for four years, finally we got it and this was the day we got.
And we're hoping we can come back.>> Obviously people come from all over the world for even just a day and then have to leave, so it's awful. I feel bad that they have to do that.>> They may be the world's best golfers, but this is also one of the most frustrating courses in the world.
Six times Masters champion, Jack Nicklaus, telling reporters this week that the wind will only add to the frustration. Meaning, this year, it could be anyone's game.
