CHONAN, Chiba Pref. (Kyodo) The first round of the Itoen Ladies has been canceled due to inclement weather conditions, organizers said Friday.

A thunderstorm forced organizers to shorten the 60 million yen three-day event to 36 holes. Players ranked inside the top 70 on Saturday will advance to Sunday’s final round at Great Island Club.
