Persistent heavy rain and lightning in Houston on the morning of December 13 made the major US WOmen’s Open event unable to close on the same day.
The 75th US Women’s Open’s last day weather forecast records the possibility of a storm sweep by around 10:00 am. To ensure progress, the governing body of the American Golf Association (USGA) pushed the first group start time before 8:00, two hours earlier than the penultimate leg with the goal of all joining before the rain.
The forecast matched the reality, so the organizers pulled the whistle to signal a pause at 10:10 am local time, 13 hours after Hanoi time. At that time, 42 players had finished at least one hole and the last three games that had not entered the game were Hinako Shibuno, Amy Olson and Moriya Jutanugarn – who finished the top 3 after 54 holes.
At 13:39, the situation was still not so good, so the USGA announced to delay the whole round. At this point, Shibuno kept the top of the board at -4 with a one-stroke advantage over Amy Olson. Kim Ji Yeong2 and Moriya Jutanugarn stood T3 at point -1. Former world number one Ariya Jutanugarn – Moriya’s brother from T9 temporarily to T5 thanks to a birdie. This group is currently five players, including Lydia Ko is also each world number one.
On the evening of the same day, Olson had a psychological upheaval because her father-in-law Lee Olson died suddenly. Even so, her husband stayed behind to support his wife on the way to find the title and the first major after seven years of LPGA Tour. This guy will go home to mourn his father right after the award.
In the wet conditions of the past few days, when the penultimate round ended, the USGA reduced the field length from 6,339 yards to 6,635 for the last round by pushing the tee position a few holes closer to the green.
The finish line will reopen at 7:45 am, December 14 local time, starting from the two ends of Cypress Creek, par71. Shibuno – Olson – Moriya Jutanugarn was still late, joining from hole 1 at 8:25 am, and Ko – Kim2 – Yealimi Noh – the group close to the scoreboard – went the same way a hole ahead of them.
Nine years ago, the US Women’s Open was a day behind as this year. Meanwhile, Ryu So Yeon hit 69 in the last round on Monday instead of the usual Sunday. She won at 3 after 72 holes at Broadmoor, par71 in Colorado.
