PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Mindy Kim birdied her last hole Saturday morning to join the leaders after one strange round of the Bahamas LPGA Classic.
The tournament is being playing over 12 holes for three rounds because of severe flooding at the Ocean Club earlier in the week. Even with a short course, the first round took two days to complete because of a three-hour delay Friday with lightning in the area.
Kim finished off a bogey-free round of 6-under 39 with a birdie on the par-4 eighth, which serves as the closing hole. She joined Heather Bowie Young and Silvia Cavalleri in the lead. They finished the opening round Friday.
The plan is to complete three 12-hole rounds to reach 36 holes, the minimum to make this inaugural event official.
