DUBLIN, OHIO - Leave it to Mother Nature to rain on Graham DeLaet’s parade.

At least from a hockey standpoint, anyway.

While the inclement weather that plagued the 2103 Presidents Cup could not stop the Saskatchewan native from being the event’s ‘Cinderella story’ (to borrow a phrase from the cult golf movie Caddyshack), heavy rains did keep him from seeing his beloved Calgary Flames take on the host Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday at Nationwide Arena.

After play had been stopped for a couple of hours earlier in the day due to monsoon-like storms that roared through the Columbus area, DeLaet and the rest of the competition were forced to get as many holes in as they could once the event resumed.

As a result, they were still at Muirfield Village when the puck was being dropped 20 kilometres away in downtown Columbus by none other than the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus.
