Stormy Desert Classic

DUBAI () -- Torrential rain washed out Tuesday's special exhibition match involving several of the leading players in this week's Desert Classic.


The nine-hole match on the Emirates Course was to have included defending champion Fred Couples, Colin Montgomerie, Ian Woosnam, Seve Ballesteros and Constantino Rocca.


The area, with an average annual rainfall of 89 millimeters, has been drenched by almost 60 millimeters in the past two days. The unsettled weather is expected to continue Wednesday when the pro-am is scheduled. Better weather is forecast for the start of the tournament proper on Thurs day.
