Golf: Rain delays LWC Women at NAIA National Championship

By Christopher Coombs

Oklahoma City, OK - First round action of the 27th Annual Women's Golf National Championship was scheduled to commence this morning, but inclement weather has forced the suspension of play for the opening round. The format will switch from a 72-hole tournament to a 54-hole tournament.

Rainy weather has pounded the Oklahoma City area, forcing a cancelation for the second straight day after Monday's practice round was also canceled.

The No. 13-ranked Blue Raiders will now open their NAIA National Championship on Wednesday at 2:30pmCT. They are paired with No. 3 British Columbia and No. 8 Embry-Riddle (AZ). Thursday will see Lindsey Wilson tee off at 9:40amCT.

In addition to the elimination of 18 holes of play, the cut line will be completed on Thursday evening. Previously scheduled pairings for Round One will be used on Thursday while the tee times for Wednesday will remain the same.

Starting in 2001, the tournament was expanded to 72-holes; the last time the championship was affected by rain to this degree was in 2016 when only 36-holes of golf were able to be played at Savannah Quarters Country Club in Pooler, GA.
