PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — A storm the locals haven’t seen in some 20 years pounded Paradise Island through the night, dumping about a foot of rain in an eight-hour span that flooded the Ocean Club. There was so much water on the course — the entire 18th fairway was covered — that the tournament was reduced to 54 holes.

The first round is to start Friday with a Sunday finish, leaving some flexibility in case more showers cause problems.

The rain wiped out the pro-am, so the LPGA Tour hastily arranged for players to meet at a restaurant at The Atlantis [sic] for a question-and-answer sessions with the amateurs. The group of players included the top three in the world ranking — Inbee Park, Lewis and Pettersen, along with Brittany Lincicome and Natalie Gulbis.
