AUGUSTA, Ga. – Twenty-five minutes after the first groups teed off in the 84th Masters Tournament,  play was suspended because of approaching inclement weather.

The first groups went out at 7:10 a.m. ET, 10 minutes after Gary Player’s and Jack Nicklaus’ ceremonial tee shots. Going off the first and 10th tees at Augusta National Golf Club, no threesome made it through two holes before the siren sounded.

Only three groups posted scores.
