Webb, Alex co-lead­ers at U.S. Women’s Open

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

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.
