Wright fires 7-under 38 -- not at mini-golf

  • Print

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Lindsey Wright didn't realize she finished with six straight 3s on her scorecard. She couldn't name the holes where she made her seven birdies on Saturday. She only knew she played some pretty good golf in the Bahamas LPGA Classic.

Wright had a 7-under 38 on the makeshift Ocean Club course and was atop the leaderboard midway through the second round.

Severe flooding earlier in the week left so much of the golf course under water that the LPGA Tour's only chance to finish the inaugural event was to use 12 holes over three rounds to reach the 36 holes necessary to make it official.

"I didn't know what was going on," Wright said. "I just play. That's probably how we should do it all the time."

Wright was at 8-under 82, a score that won't be found at any other golf tournament. What mattered was that it was the lowest one posted as the other half of the field was making their way around the jumbled route on a steamy day near Caribbean waters.

With everyone starting on the 10th hole, the final tee time was 3:20 p.m. CT. It was critical to get the second round -- all of 24 holes -- completed to be able to finish today. Several players have U.S. Women's Open qualifying early next week.

Wright was one-shot clear of Eun-Hee Ji, who had a 5-under 40. Cristie Kerr hit the ball better and relied on her putting for a 5-under 40 that got her back into the mix. Kerr was two shots out of the lead.
