Wind suspends 3rd round at St. Andrews
By DOUG FERGUSON
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Inbee Park was hopeful of tough conditions to help her make up an eight-shot deficit at the Women's British Open.
It turned out to be too tough.
Park's ball moved on the fourth green from 40 mph gusts at St. Andrews, and the third round was suspended a short time later. Officials waited nearly six hours before deciding not to resume the third round until 6:15 a.m. Sunday. The hope would be to get 72 holes in by Sunday evening.
Of the nine players who finished the third round, the best score was a 75.
Park, going after a record fourth professional major in the same year, was 1 under through four holes.
St. Andrews is one of the most difficult links courses in Britain when the wind is strong.
