Another day, another delay for the 2011 U.S. Women's Open at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Play was delayed for an hour after 6 p.m. MT and resumed an hour later, but darkness forced a suspension of play until Saturday morning.
I.K. Kim holds the lead at 4-under after having a bogey-free Round 1 with one birdie and then three more birdies through 14 holes in Round 2. She is holding off former leader Stacy Lewis, who is 2-under. Lewis had been 3-under after the first round and reached 5-under twice in the second round, but a bogey on the 14th and a double-bogey on the 15th brought her to her current score.
Defending champions Paul Creamer toughed out four bogeys in the first round to finish at 1-under and has now positioned herself into contention with a 2-under in Round 2, two holes to go. At 1-under for the tournament she is tied for fifth with four others (none of who have started Round 2 yet). Yani Tseng, her pairing partner, has struggled so far with a 3-over for the tournament.
North Dakota State junior (in the fall) and amateur player Amy Anderson has yet to tee off in Round 2.
Second round play will resume at 7:00 a.m. on the hole in which the players left off when play was suspended Friday. Those who have not yet teed off will begin immediately following. When the 2nd round is complete, the cut will be made, pairings will be determined and round 3 will begin.
NBC begins its TV coverage at 1:00 p.m. MT.
