Evian play abandoned due to rain
The first day's play in the Evian Championship has been abandoned after heavy rain made the course in France unplayable.
Start times for round one of the inaugural fifth major of the LPGA season were initially delayed by two hours due to the rain before play began at 9:45am local time.
However, after more heavy rain play was suspended at 10:32am and eventually abandoned shortly before midday. The scores of the 15 players who were out on the course will be wiped out, with play resuming - weather permitting - at 7:45am on Friday.
Almost four inches of rain have fallen on the redesigned Evian Resort course, which overlooks the shores of Lake Geneva, since Saturday.
