Play has been halted at the start of day two of the Open after very heavy rain in the early hours waterlogged the greens.

A yellow weather warning had been issued by the Met Office yesterday to offer an inkling about what to expect, and at 6.46am it was announced that play had been suspended until further notice.

With winds added in gusting up to nearly 40mph, conditions were truly atrocious on the Old Course and with it not due to clear until at least 10am, the state of the course is likely to get worse before it gets any better.

Some of the day’s early starters were up and about on social media to give their reactions to what they were seeing outside.

Scot Richie Ramsay, who was due out at 7.05am, tweeted: “I would say even a Scotsman would describe the weather as bad this morning in St Andrews. #battle #grind”

He followed that up with:

Eddie Pepperell, who wasn’t due out until 3.40pm, but the rain is expected to return later this afternoon into this evening, tweeted:

While Tommy Fleetwood, who was meant to be out at 8am, tweeted:
