Templeton Chattanooga Open began with an extended rain delay in the early morning. Thanks in large part to the Course Superintendent as well as the patience and understanding of the players, competitors were able to start after a five and a half hour rain delay with a 2 p.m. shotgun. With rain hovering the area for most of the first round, all 18 holes were able to be completed.
