Fog suspends Women's Open; Rd. 2 resumes 7AM ET

RSS

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – The suspended second round of the U.S. Women’s Open will resume at 7 a.m. Saturday at Sebonack Golf Club.

Forty-one players were still on the course when the horn suspended play at 6:40 p.m. because of heavy fog.

Nobody left on the course has a realistic chance of catching Inbee Park as the second-round leader. Jodi Ewart Shadoff is the closest at five shots back with three holes to play.

The third round is scheduled to begin about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday with threesomes going off two sets of tees.

Brittany Lincicome is among those players who must return to finish their rounds. She was able to finish the seventh hole but is left with two holes to play.

“At the seventh hole, we couldn’t even see the green,” Lincicome said of her last approach shot. “I asked my caddie, `Where are we going?’”

For some players, like Michelle Wie, it’s a brutal morning wakeup call. Wie is 11-over par with one hole left to play. She has no chance of making the cut, which should end up at 5 or 6 over.
