First day of Evian Championship washed out

The opening day of play at the Evian Championship in France was washed out today after heavy morning rain soaked the newly designed course.

Players were on the course for less than an hour before being forced to come off, and organisers decided to restart the round tomorrow with today's scores wiped clean. The weather forecast for today and tomorrow is good and officials still hope to complete the tournament on time by playing 36 holes on Sunday.
