Wind stops play at Women's British Open
St. Andrews, Scotland (Sports Network) - After more than five hours of waiting, officials finally called play for the day Saturday at the Women's British Open.
Play was halted well before leader Na Yeon Choi teed off as high wind was blowing golf balls all over greens.
Nine players managed to complete their third rounds. Cristie Kerr and amateur Lydia Ko both posted 3-over 75s for the best score of those finished.
Of the 42 players on the course, Anna Nordqvist had the best score by two strokes. Nordqvist was 1-under par through 15 holes of her third round on the Old Course at St. Andrews.
The round was halted for the day when the wind refused to die down. Round three will resume on Sunday at 6:15 a.m. local time, with the final round to follow. Players will remain in the same groups on Sunday.
