The Butterfield Bermuda Championship is lacking a number of high-profile players but it appears the tournament has everything.
Players were kicked off planes en route because of heavy loads, they couldn't fill the field and then the weather took a wild turn.
Some players previously couldn't take part and threw tantrums because of Bermuda's vaccination policy.
Before play the Patrick Reed "cheating saga" emerged again which added some much-needed spice.

One player who took it all in and saw the funny side of things was Matthew Fitzpatrick.
The England golfer is fresh off a victory on the European Tour at Valderrama and is one of the favourites this week.
He was on the course when play was briefly suspended because the winds got so fast.
Fitzpatrick, 27, was asked after he carded a level-par opening round of 71 if he had ever seen conditions like he witnessed in Port Royal.

"No, this is the hardest wind I've ever played in," he said. "You see winds like this, but normally you don't play in them.
"This was the hardest wind I've ever played in.
"I absolutely ripped a drive on seven.
"People are going to laugh at this because they probably think it's my normal tee shot, but anyway, I ripped it and it went 245.
"That's... I think my season average last year was like 295.
"Just shows you how strong it was."
The Englishman also conceded he was "scared to death" of an 18-inch putt, and told the media: "I've never had a putt like it".
We hear you Fitzy.

This is from yesterday, Lucas Herbert's caddie, I very much underestimate what a 25mph wind is. pic.twitter.com/FvG7iZpulc
Elsewhere, Scotland's Russel Knox said the wind was so bad he "couldn't physically walk", according to GolfChannel's Ryan Lavner.
"We were down on the ground holding an umbrella," Knox was quoted as saying.
"My fingers were cramping and I'm holding on so tight, and it was pouring rain as hard as it's ever rained."
It's fair to say before the tournament it didn't exactly attract our interest.
A spot at the Masters is available in this thing.
Our interest is now well and truly peaked.
