When will they stop holding GS tournies in countries where it rains all the time???



Such a soggy, damp, grey, muddy, dreary country must not be allowed to host major sporting events.

I couldn't agree more, Chris It's a disgrace that court hasn't got a roof.

Ba - Are you thinking of jolly old England and Wimbey?
That is a country.

In the . they would only need to move it to another state.
Namely, California.

I suggest they build a gigantic rain proof superdome over several of the eastern US states...and change the courts to grass...and have more polite crowds...and less junk food...and less Americans...and ban the words USA USA USA...and yet have Jen Capriati win the tournie just to make Mr Rexx hush up.
