It’s all go for January after the R&A and USGA published their finalised Rules of Golf. So what’s coming in? Steve Carroll outlines the changes.
Rain Washes Out LPGA Major
Play was abandoned on the first day of the Evian Championship – the inaugural fifth major of the LPGA season – following four inches of rainfall which made the course in south-east France unplayable.
A two-hour delay was followed by play starting at 9:45am local time (08:45 BST) before it was suspended at 10:32am and then abandoned shortly before midday.
Only 15 golfers started their rounds, and their scores will now be wiped clean. Weather permitting; the first round will now start anew at 7:45am on Friday.
