Webb, Alex co-leaders at U.S. Women’s Open
LANCASTER, Pa. — Atop the leaderboard, veteran Karrie Webb and LPGA Tour sophomore Marina Alex did their best to temper expectations at the U.S. Women’s Open. The early Thursday starters opened with 4-under-par 66s, and that score held up through the afternoon before things turned wet and windblown. Play was suspended in the early evening after a storm packing high winds, lightning and heavy rain pounded Lancaster Country Club. The sudden halt to the action with 55 players left to complete their rounds — with at least two threatening the lead — left Webb and Alex as unlikely coleaders. The USGA’s plan is to restart the first round at 6:45 a.m. Friday, and begin the second round a half-hour later.
