Wind makes it an Open farce
Saturday 15 September 2012
The final major of the season descended into near-farce at windswept Hoylake yesterday when players at the women's British Open battled conditions former winner Karen Stupples said were "laughable".
The second round was suspended after 78 minutes, all recorded scores were cancelled and the championship will resume at 6.50am today.
"The competitors began their round in extremely adverse weather and it would have been unfair not to declare play null and void and cancel all scores for the round in question," said tournament director Susan Simpson.
