Only a small group was able to complete 18 holes before play was stopped around 8:30 due to darkness. None of the Lady Flames finished. However, Kylie Barros of British Columbia took the conditions in stride and posted an even-par 73 on the 6,170 yards course.
“We didn't finish, only got through 12-15 holes,” said coach John Maupin. “The conditions were very tough and there were some long delays. We will need to stay focused and play through the tough conditions. It will come down to mental toughness, as the weather isn't going to get much better.”
When play was suspended, Geandra Almeida was 5-over par. Kristin Bourg followed at 6 over, while Courtney Shelton and Sloane Skinner stood at 7 over. Amanda DeJiacomo was at plus 11.
The golfers will have to brave the rugged conditions again on Wednesday morning. The Lady Flames are among a large group scheduled to tee-off at 8:30 a.m., finish round one and then go back out for 18 more holes of golf.
