Nasa Hataoka still in share of second at rain-shortened Kingsmill Championship


Heavy rain led tournament organizers to cancel Saturday’s play at the Kingsmill Championship, reducing the tournament to 54 holes with Chun In-gee leading and Nasa Hataoka in a share of second.

Chun of South Korea is the current leader at 11-under-par. Hataoka and Austin Ernst of the United States are a shot back at the Kingsmill Resort.

Sixty players, including Ayako Uehara who is at 5-under and in a share for 17th, did not finish their second rounds and will resume play Sunday at 7:30 a.m.

Two of the 60 players that failed to complete their second round are in the top-10. World No. 9 American Jessica Korda, who shared the lead with Chun and others after carding a first-round 65, sits three shots off the pace in a tie for sixth with four holes remaining in her second tour.
