Truth & Rumors: Weather threatens to cut Singapore Open to 54 holes

According to a BBC report, the Barclays Singapore Open could be cut to a 54 hole event due to bad weather for the second year in a row.

"At present, our aim is still to complete 72 holes, weather permitting," said tournament director Jose Maria Zamora.
"However, if we do suffer more delays we would then decide, in consultation with the sponsor and promoter, whether to reduce the tournament to 54 holes or complete the fourth round on Monday."
With only half of the field able to start Friday's round, several greens under water and more rain in the forecast, chances don't look good.
Included in the field is world No. 1 Rory McIlroy. McIlroy needs to finish in the top three to guarantee that he remains atop the European Tour's Race for Dubai rankings, according to the report.
