Pittsford, N.Y. • A steady rain punctuated by heavy downpours has forced the postponement of the first round of the LPGA Championship on Thursday.

The LPGA's second major of the year will begin Friday morning, the second round will be staged on Saturday, and the players will attempt to complete 36 holes on Sunday, the LPGA said.

Two weeks ago at the Bahamas LPGA Classic, the course was closed for two days because of severe flooding, and when the tournament finally got under way it was shortened to 12 holes.

The LPGA Tour was determined to play in the Bahamas with two new title sponsors and devised a 12-hole route that would allow the players three rounds to reach 36 holes and make it an official event.

The flooding in the Bahamas was caused by a foot of rain in about five hours. It wasn't that bad at Locust Hill on Thursday, but it, too, wasn't pretty.
