Video: ASB Classic smashed by deluge of rain as severe storm hits Auckland

Spectators of the ASB Classic were left disappointed by Auckland's weather today, as heavy rain wiped out the day session of the tournament.

Having lost most of the first day of play due to poor weather, things didn't fair much differently on day three, with a heavy downpour bringing play to a standstill.

The ASB Classic said on Facebook that they're hopeful play will begin at 4:00pm.
