Brian Gay beat Wyndham Clark in a playoff to win last season's Bermuda Championship. This was his first win on the PGA tour since 2013.
Gay is back to defend his title at Port Royal Golf Course, but he and his wife Kimberly were forced to arrive on Tuesday, which was a day late.
The 49-year-old was unable to board his flight on Monday because the plane was too heavy. He was bumped on to the next flight, which wasn't until yesterday.
The delay limited his preparation as a result and the pro-am on Wednesday has also been cancelled due to inclement weather and dangerous wind gusts.
Practice facilities have also been closed until further notice, so Gay's powers of patience are being tested to the max this week.
The five-time PGA Tour winner finished third in the inaugural playing of the tournament in 2019, so he will be relying on his past experiences to get him through what has already been a frustrating week.
His win in Southampton Parish last season was his only top-20 finish in 2021. Gay made it to the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs but missed the cut at the Northern Trust.
This will be the second time that the Bermuda Championship has been promoted to full FedEx Cup point status.
This came after the cancellation of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China because of travel restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
