Rice Planters: Rain washes away 1st round
A heavy rainstorm washed away the first round of play at the 2013 Rice Planters Amateur and tournament officials decided to make it a 54-hole tournament.

Golfers will begin play again Thursday morning at Snee Farm Country Club.

ABOUT THE Rice Planters Amateur

The Rice Planters Amateur was the inspiration of amateur golfer, Dick Horne. During his first Porter Cup at the Niagara Falls Country Club in 1973, Horne befriended the tournament's chairman Dick Harvey. Harvey encouraged a receptive Horne to develop his own southern tournament and, consequently, along with other Porter Cup officials, shared enough useful information to get Horne started in the South. The Rice Planters quickly grew to become one of the top amateur events in the country.

FORMAT AND ENTRY INFORMATION
Like the Porter Cup, the Rice Planters is played over 72 holes of stroke play. While entries are by invitation only, the tournament typically holds a 90-player qualifier for the final five spots in the field.
