PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Heather Bowie Young finished with six straight 3s on a very strange scorecard in the Bahamas LPGA Classic.
Bowie Young made birdies on half of the 12 holes the LPGA Tour set up Friday for a 6-under 39 at the Ocean Club. That gave her the lead in the middle of a long, bizarre opening round that had no chance of finishing because of a three-hour delay.
Severe flooding earlier in the week left much of the course under water. The tour decided to use the holes that were available — two of them converted to par 3s — with hopes of three rounds at 12 holes to make the inaugural event official.
Bowie Young says a score of 39 is typical for her, at least over nine holes.
