Slugger White, the PGA Tours vice-president of rules and competition, said Wednesday that nearly 1 1/2 inches of rain and hail "half the size of baseballs" fell the previous night. "There is a lot of debris, leaves, branches," White said, adding that he saw no trees down. White said it was uncertain to know how the damage and the repair work on the greens would affect the tournament. "They had guys on there (Wednesday) morning, 10 or 12 guys going from front to back trying to fix what looked like ball marks," he said.

Slugger White, vice president of competition at the PGA Tour, stopped Woods before he signed for a 70. Woods didn't believe the ball moved out of its position, and White said the world's No. 1 player still wasn't convinced after watching the video.
"He said he didn't feel he could see that," White said.
White said a freelance camera man working for the tour captured it on video. An editor at headquarters going over the footage thought there was movement of the ball and notified the PGA Tour.
The film was sent over to tour officials on site at Conway Farms, and it was reviewed at the tournament before bringing in Woods for consultation.
The movement was slight, though it appears to have moved down when Woods touches a small branch to the right of the golf ball, and it doesn't appear to return to its original position. White said Woods could not have seen that from his position looking down at the top of the ball.
Woods accepted his two-shot penalty at the Masters when he became aware of his bad drop. Friday was different. Even after looking at the video, Woods wasn't convinced the ball moved from its position.
"He knew there was movement there, but it's like (he) was very adamant that it oscillated - it stayed there," White said. "But this video was at the site, and the ball did in fact move."
Asked to describe Woods' reaction, White said, "He was a little disbelieving. How's that?'"
It was the third time this year Woods was given a two-shot penalty for a rules violation. At his first event of the season in Abu Dhabi, he took relief from an imbedded lie in a sandy area covered with vines. It was determined that relief was not allowed in the sand. He was docked two shots before signing his card, and it caused him to miss the cut.
