RIDGELAND, S.C. — The dark clouds that had loitered ominously in the sky over Congaree Golf Club were about to burst with unwelcome torrents of rain.

Most spectators at the Palmetto Championship at Congaree on Saturday had already retreated to their cars and a dry return to their homes or hotel rooms. A man on a shuttle bus racing the raindrops made his way to one of the parking lots.

“Who’d have thought we’d have this out here,” the man said to fellow riders, “out in the middle of nowhere?”

He was referring not to the summer storms routine for June, but to a PGA Tour event out here in rural Jasper County, South Carolina. Until its announcement March 30 — of this year — the golf tournament didn’t exist and at that date didn’t have a publicized name.
