Play set to resume at LPGA Tour Championship


RICHMOND, Texas – LPGA officials announced that they will attempt to begin play at 1 p.m. local time Friday at the LPGA Tour Championship.

Rain postponed the start of Friday's action at The Houstonian Golf & Country Club. Play was scheduled to begin with the 10 players whose rounds were suspended due to darkness Thursday going back on the course to finish at 7 a.m. local time. Round 2 also was supposed to begin at 7 a.m.

The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of precipitation until 2 p.m., when the chance for rain falls to 90 percent. 

Karen Stupples (1-under through 16 holes) was the only player under par on the course when play was suspended Thursday night due to darkness.
