Louis Oosthuizen's golf ball plugs into soaked Muirfield Village green

It's not exactly firm and fast in Columbus on Saturday.

Muirfield Village is known for having some of the fastest greens on the entire PGA Tour, with Jack Nicklaus demanding the putting surfaces be super quick when the Memorial comes to town each June. The weather is notoriously bad for that event, and we're getting more of it this week.

The firm and fast conditions were supposed to be in play this week at the Presidents Cup, but three straight days of heavy rain have waterlogged the course. And the greens, well they're quite receptive with the balls not really running out...like, at all. Here's Louis Oosthuizen on the usually difficult No. 12:

Annnd...plugged. The grounds crews are out using squegees on the greens, while the PGA Tour holds players in place as they wait for the rain to subside.

It's not all bad, however, as these conditions make the course easier and creates more birdie conditions. That usually leads to some exciting swings in match play.

The hope is that the course and greens can stay playable with more rain on the way.
