The Sanford International Pro-Am will have a two-hour delay Wednesday morning because of weather. A shotgun start is planned for 9:20 a.m. 

PGA Tour Champions Players from around the world are getting ready to tee up at Minnehaha Country Club. 

KELOLAND’s Claire Lavezzorio interviews PGA meteorologist Willis Young about what factors go into letting play start or stop on the golf course. 

Young said he’s focused on incoming storms and the lightning. He said they use an 8-mile radius around the golf course and if lightning is detected within that radius, play is halted and players and spectators are asked to evacuate the course. 

Willis said if the course is playable, play will go on. Wednesday’s Pro-Am is set to tee off at 7 a.m.
