EVIAN CHAM­PI­ONSHIP ROUND POST­PONED BY RAIN

USA TODAY US Edition - - SPORTS -

Rain and strong winds at Evian-Les-Bains, France, have forced Thurs­day’s play to be scrapped at the fi­nal women’s golf ma­jor of the sea­son, which will start fresh on Fri­day as a 54-hole event. LPGA Tour Com­mis­sioner Michael Whan said what the lit­tle play was achieved Thurs­day morn­ing at the Evian Cham­pi­onship is wiped from the record. “No­body even played half a round,” Whan said, adding that a 54-hole cham­pi­onship fin­ish­ing Sun­day of­fered the “clean­est, fairest, most com­pet­i­tive” op­tion.
