The two most spectacular areas of damage were still a work in progress, but that progress was coming along nicely.
On the par-3 18th hole, two large trees to the left of the tee box fell toward the green into Howard's Creek, causing a considerable amount to damage to the ground.
Crews smoothed out the affected area and laid sod on it. The damaged skyboxes at that hole - including resort owner Jim Justice's box - were rebuilt.
Nearby, the first tree hugging the left of the first fairway was noticeably absent. There weren't many other easily detected lost trees or damage to the grounds until the 16th.
That hole presented the biggest challenge, as a big tree flopped into the back edge of the green and made it unplayable.
Looking at the green, some scratches remain. Worse areas were plugged with hexagonal patches from the chipping green, and grass has been planted all around. The idea is to transform the area into a fringe surface, easier to even out by Thursday morning.
And easier to avoid an area being declared "ground under repair," such as happened last week at the AT&T National in suburban Washington, where the storm hit between rounds.
The third round of that tournament, framed by uprooted trees, was played without spectators and most volunteers.
The head groundskeeper was unavailable for comment Monday because, well, he was the busiest man on the course. But this is likely his finest moment, professionally.
"Kelly Shumate, you can't say enough about him," McNeely said.
