Golf: Winter weather means another Port postponement

The October medal and Winter Handicap suffered another postponement at Port Banantyne on Sunday after a pre-dawn inspection found that the first three greens on the course were unplayable.

Frustratingly, conditions improved in the hours after the call-off and the unplayable greens would almost certainly have been playable by 11am - but by then it was much too late to reverse the decision.
