Weather-hit Kingsmill Championship shortened to 54 holes
The LPGA’s Kingsmill Championship has been reduced to 54 holes after an entire day’s play was lost.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms in Williamsburg, Virginia, have caused multiple delays throughout the week, and things did not get any better on Saturday.
After several delays to the start of play, the LPGA finally made the decision to try again on Sunday morning.
UPDATE: Unfortunately weather continues to affect us and we cannot play golf today. The @KingsmillLPGA will be reduced to 54 holes.
Round 2 will resume tomorrow (Sunday) at 7:30am. We hope to start the final round at 10:30am.
