The Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour Kyochon 1991 Ladies Open (total prize money of 800 million won) was also crippled by heavy rain for two days in a row. The tournament, which is being held at the Asiad Country Club in Gijang-gun, Busan, will be reduced from 54 holes to 36 holes as the first round matches held the previous day did not finish until today.
The KLPGA tour announced, “We decided to cancel the final 3 rounds due to heavy rain and strong winds.”
The match was delayed due to heavy rain on the 5th, so 65 out of 130 players could not complete the first round. On the 6th, the game was also delayed for more than 4 hours due to bad weather. There are 58 players who have not finished the first round in two days.
Accordingly, the KLPGA Tour announced that the remainder of the first round will start at 6:30 am on the 7th, and the second round will be held between 9:00 and 9:30 am.
