PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Two hours after she was supposed to tee off in Thursday’s start of the Wegmans LPGA Championship, Stacy Lewis ventured out into the rain to hit some balls on the range during a weather delay.
A soaked Lewis left the range wondering if there would be any play on Thursday.
“May be the only shots I hit today!” Lewis tweeted.
With heavy rain coming down in the early morning hours, the LPGA put the event’s start in a weather suspension before the first tee times were scheduled to begin at 7:15 a.m. The rains never relented. By 10:30 a.m., still in the rain delay, LPGA officials informed players that the suspension of play wouldn’t end until at least 2 p.m. Several players left the course after that announcement.
“I think I’m going to go see a movie,” said Greg Puga, Lizette Salas’ caddie.
Another weather update is scheduled at noon, but the forecast is ominous.
