Who'll stop the rain? 

August, 18, 2006
MEDINAH, Ill. -- It's getting late. Almost 9:30 p.m. local time on Friday. Though every golfer has already left the course, one major player is sticking around to make sure the course is exactly how she wants it for the third round. That's right -- she. Mother Nature.

It is raining mashies and niblicks right now, the sound of the downpour hitting the media tent roof like 1,000 reporters banging away at those old-school typewriter thingamajigs.
