Thunderstorms have limited practice play on Monday and Tuesday at Augusta National.
The storm that stopped practice play for the 2019 Masters on Monday at Augusta National continued through the night and play was suspended again on Tuesday morning because of the ongoing threat of thunderstorms.
Rain chances for Tuesday range from 30 to 50% throughout the evening with more storms expected that could bring as much as another inch of rain.
The course at Augusta National can handle large amounts of rain thanks to a SubAir drainage system but luckily for participants, the forecast improves on Wednesday. No rain is projected again until the weekend, which could impact later rounds.
Tournament play will officially begin on Thursday, April 11 for the 87 golfers vying for the green jacket. The Masters will conclude on Sunday, April 14.
