Weather delay: Masters play suspended Saturday, expected to resume around 5:15 p.m.

Masters play was suspended Saturday due to dangerous weather. Players and caddies were seen moving out to the driving range around 4:40 p.m. and play is expected to resume at approximately 5:15 p.m.

For all of its natural beauty, the Masters Tournament is often plagued by weather that's downright ugly.

Look back at tournament history and you'll see a pattern of weather delays. An entire round hasn't been canceled since 1983, when the tournament finished on a Monday.

In 1936, heavy rain forced eventual winner Horton Smith to play 36 holes on the final day. Two years later, the tournament didn't even start until Saturday. Thirty-six holes were played Sunday that year, with the final round held Monday. The 1939 tournament featured a final-day Sunday with 36 holes.
