The Firth of Forth, it turns out, has nothing on Arizona when it comes to wacky weather for a golf tournament.

Play at the WGC Match Play Championship, in Marana, Ariz., on Wednesday was suspended at 1:07 p.m. (EST) because of a giant snowstorm that sent golfers scurrying to the clubhouse and caddies lofting snowballs at one another.
