Truth & Rumors: Vandals cause delay at KLM Open

Dutch Destruction There was heavy rain in the Netherlands on Thursday morning, but that wasn't the only reason for the delay at the Euro Tour's KLM Open. NBC Sports's Ryan Ballengee fleshes out an AP report on some unauthorized maintenance to the host course:

The start of play at the KLM Open was delayed on Thursday in the Netherlands when officials discovered four greens at Hilversum Golf Club had been vandalized. Greens at the fourth through sixth and ninths holes had been dug up, causing a 45-minute delay.
The areas that required fixing on those four greens will be considered ground under repair, similar to what was done at the PGA Championship when equipment used by maintenance staff caused damage to two greens at Atlanta Athletic Club.

"I was asked if I wanted to go to US college and was told not to worry about my schoolwork – they would do it for me," said Lewis. "But I didn't want to do that. If I was going to do it, I was going to do it properly. I wasn't going to sit in class and let someone else do my work. What's the point of that?"
