WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS - There certainly is a lot to see at the greenbrier tournament for players, fans and workers, and that is why there are professional eyes on the skies so everyone else can enjoy action on the ground.
Stewart Williams spends most of the tournament in a trailer watching the radars for incoming storms.  He says the show will go on through a little rain, but not if puddles begin to form on the course.  Lightning will also bring everything to a halt right away.   But when it comes to taking the heat for making tournament-altering decisions, Williams says he isn't too worried.  He says his 20 years of experience allow the tour to trust his judgment, and they always stay on the side of caution.
