BARRINGTON, R.I. (WPRI) — The CVS Health Charity Classic teed off Sunday, though rain cancelled the morning session and abbreviated the afternoon group.

The afternoon session did get underway but only for nine holes. Officials said the main objection was to make sure the course was in the best possible shape for the main events on Monday and Tuesday.

But the rain didn’t keep the golfers away.

“I hadn’t been, in quite a few years, to Rhode Island. I love being here, I love the state,” said Webb Simpson, the 2012 U.S. Open Champion. “Finally my schedule allowed for me to be here, so it’s great to be here.”

“I’ve been here a long time ago for the Northeast Amateur, so it’s bee probably seven or eight years — had a great time. I was here last time so I’m glad to be back,” said PGA Professional Zack Sucher.

Trick Golf Shot Master George Bryan was also on hand Sunday.

“We started this trick shot stuff, it’s been crazy and a little better doing events like this — places all over the country, filming videos and playing golf as well. So it’s been a little different in the last year for sure,” Bryan said.
