BEDMINSTER, N.J. (seminoles.com) – The first round of the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open at Trump National has been suspended because of darkness. The suspension came after a rain delay of approximately 1:45 late in the afternoon and has affected nearly 25 percent of the 156-golfer field including Florida State’s Morgane Metraux. Metraux has completed 13 of her 18 holes and is five strokes over par. She will compete her first round of play on Friday morning before beginning her second round of play.
Former Florida State All-American Kris Tamulis, who teed off in the morning wave of golfers, carded a 2-over par score of 74 with 14 of 18 holes scored at par or better with three birdies. She was never more than two strokes over par at any time during the round.
Round 1 will resume at 6:45 a.m. Friday with round 2 beginning at 7 a.m., with all round 2 tee times delayed 15 minutes.
