MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Things started off pretty chilly at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship at Dove Mountain in Marana.

It was muddy and wet after the snow was cleared from the course. But that didn't stop the hundreds, if not thousands, of fans trying to get a glimpse of their favorite player.

The talk on the course for the fans was about the weather. Many were shocked to see that so much snow was on the ground.

A majority of the fans arrived early, and since there were several delays, the fans had to find ways to occupy their time.

A few built snowmen with the leftover snow, others spent time at the food court and some went to the pro shop.

For a second day in a row, the pro shop was pretty busy, in part because the weather at the event was a little chilly.

Fans were dressed in beanie hats and jackets instead of the normal polo shirts, shorts and baseball caps.

If the fans didn't come prepared, the shop had plenty of jackets.

The delays also kept the employees at the store busy.

Sue Cramer PGA Tour Merchandise Manager said, "We probably tripled our jacket sales from last year easily."
