AVONDALE, La. (AP) - Heavy rain, lightning and a severe weather warning have disrupted Wednesday's Pro-Am event at the PGA Tour's Zurich Classic, briefly forcing players and fans to take shelter in the TPC Louisiana clubhouse.

Authorities briefly evacuated the course and temporary tents while the worst weather passed the New Orleans area.

For about a half hour, the clubhouse restaurant and pro shop were jammed. Some players retreated to the locker room. But others, including Jeff Overton and 14-year-old Guan Tianlang, remained in the dining area where some fans approached for a brief chat or handshake.

The tents have been reopened, but steady rain has caused a lengthy disruption to the charity Pro-Am.

Officials say the 10-year-old course drains well is expected to be playable for Thursday's first round.
