LPGA Rookie Brooke Pancake is in the Bahamas this week for the Tour's inaugural Pure-Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. 
Unfortunately for the ladies, while the spot they're playing in is truly paradise, it looks as though Mother Nature has other plans for this week. 
On Wednesday morning, Pancake tweeted the following from her account (@BrookePancake) with the photo you see above:
I love the water down here in the Bahamas.. but maybe not this much!! #holes9&18 #neededthunderbuddy 
As you can see in the picture, that's actually the golf course -- the Ocean Club Golf Course -- under water after torrential rains.
By the way, loved the "#neededthunderbuddy" hashtag -- a reference to last year's box office hit, "Ted."
