The first round has been rescheduled to start on Friday morning, but more rain is forecast for the Camaleon course in Playa del Carmen.

"Everything always drains to the mangroves here and there's no place for it to go with that much rain," said PGA Tour rules official Slugger White. "Monday's always in the mix."

The Mayakoba Golf Classic is the penultimate event on the PGA Tour this year.

Rain on the other side of the world washed out Friday play at the Zozo Championship outside Tokyo in October, which led to a Monday finish at the tournament won by Tiger Woods.
