Play has been suspended for the day at the Ricoh Women’s British Open on the Royal Liverpool Hoylake golf course due to extremely adverse weather conditions.
Having lost a whole day’s play on Friday, the Championship Committee met to review the format for the remainder of the Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship with the primary objective of retaining the 72 hole format of the event. With weather conditions for Monday predicted to be similar to Friday (today) the Championship Committee has decided the following;
• Round Two will be played on Saturday to completion and a cut will be made in accordance with the amended condition published below. The cut will be reduced from 65 plus ties to 50 plus ties, including amateurs.
• Rounds 3 & 4 will be played on Sunday, with no redraw after Round 3. A two tee start will be utilised.
• Prize money will be paid as normal to those players who make the cut. In addition, official prize money will be paid to those who would have normally made the cut under the original conditions of play.
A particularly sad end to the last Major competition of the year, with only the top 50 making the cut the second round will be a really tense affair.
