However, the dismal weather that was forecast has materialised with rain sweeping through Georgia.

Tournament organisers say play will not now get underway until 0900 ET (1400 BST) at the earliest.

That will, of course, push back the rest of the field. Hideki Matsuyama, Will Zalatoris and Justin Thomas will not now go out at 1018 ET (1518 BST) as planned, likewise the following threesome containing defending champion Jon Rahm, Matt Fitzpatrick and Nick Dunlap.

The group after that includes world number one Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele.

It was later announced that play will start at 1030 ET (1530 UK BST) with the honorary starters ceremony getting underway 20 minutes earlier.
