Typhoon halts play at UL International Crown
There was no play on Day Three of the LPGA’s UL International Crown on Saturday after Typhoon Kong-rey made landfall on the Korean peninsula.
Defending champion US led Pool B at the end of the second round with six points, while Sweden was second with four points with Japan and Thailand tied on three each.
Tournament organisers had attempted to fit two rounds in on Friday, but were forced to call off play with the third round incomplete.
The good news is: after a marathon day of play on Friday, players get to rest today 😁
Bad news is: no golf 😢
