The sporting expression "caught fire" took on a literal meaning on Sunday as several players at the BMW Championship, including Phil Mickelson, were affected by a fire at their hotel.
Mickelson arrived on wheels, but only after fretting he would not be able to return to his room to collect his clubs following the mandatory evacuation. My hotel was struck by lighting, I was on top floor, we were evacuated and the place is on fire. "I'm not there. He will make tee time but very limited warm-up if any".
The 49-year-old left-hander praised members of the emergency services on Twitter and joked that his clubs had acted as "a fire retardant".
Neither Mickelson nor Poston was in contention starting the final round.Читайте также: A statistical look at the second Ashes Test
A victor earlier this month at the Wyndham Championship, Poston was almost en route to the course ahead of his 12:03 p.m. ET tee time when the evacuation process began.
"I couldn't get to my auto", Poston said. But things cleared up pretty quickly.
Poston started the final round in a tie for 24 at 8 under, and entering the week 36 in points he'll need a strong finish to crack the top 30 and earn his first Tour Championship appearance.
By the end of the day, Mickelson said everything worked out fine "except for my score". "I'm looking forward to having a couple months off and kind of regrouping and come back fresh".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
