Storm approaches Valhalla Golf Club, 1996

Posted on August 7, 2014 | in Uncategorized | by
Severe thunderstorms halted play August 8, 1996 at the 78th PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville. Thunderstorms scattered thousands of fans and interrupted play for almost four hours. But the weather didn't bother Kentucky native Kenny Perry, who took the first-round lead after sinking a 20-foot putt in the fading light as play was ended at about 8:30pm with 60 players still on the course.
