Rain, rain go away, come again ... Thursday?

The torrential downpours Monday on top of the rain last week, certainly have made for a muddy Merion Golf Club.

Now, there is a potential of rain hitting the area Thursday during the first round of the U.S. Open. Not just any rain, mind you, the National Weather Service is talking end of the world, "Caddyshack" type of rain.

Still, ticket holders, unless the monsoon actually does hit, you better be prepared with ponchos and rain boots.

"If we are able to get in four hours of play throughout the day that constitutes a full day of play," said Reg Jones, Director of Operations for U.S. Open Championships. "If we are unable to accomplish that, then we would look into possible refunds or possibly accommodating fans for another session. The policy is stated on the back of the fans ticket."

Much like the Phillies and their attempts to make sure there are no rainouts, expect the USGA to get the players on the course. If the rain is falling when you wake up Thursday morning, make sure you check out for up-to-the-minute updates.
