Major hit by rain
THE final women’s major of the year has been reduced to a 54hole tournament after significant rain, strong winds and wet course conditions forced the cancellation of the first round at Evian-lesBains, France. World No. 1 Ryu Soyeon of South Korea and Jessica Korda were leading the Evian Championship at two-under through six and eight holes respectively when play was halted. World No. 3 Park Sunghyun of South Korea was at sixover through five holes. All scores from yesterday will be taken off the board, with play beginning anew today.
