R3 suspended, play to conclude monday
October 26, 2014

The Blue Bay LPGA was pounded with torrential rains again on Sunday and will concluded on Monday with the completion of 54 holes. Approximately 2.5 inches of rain fell on Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Course on Sunday. After a 3 hour and 55 minute delay in the afternoon due to unplayable conditions, play was suspended for the day at 6:14 p.m. due to darkness. Lee-Anne Pace now holds a 4-shot lead with five holes to play.

Four groups on the back nine still need to finish play on Monday morning which will start at 8:30 a.m.

Pace, who co-led after 36 holes with Jessica Korda, had four birdies and no bogeys through 13 holes. She'll start play on Monday at 15-under par and with a 4-shot lead over Michelle Wie who is in solo second and playing one group ahead of Pace.

Play was suspended at 1:01 p.m. local time and resumed at 4:55 p.m. It was called for the day due to darkness at 6:14 p.m.

If Pace is able to hold on to her lead and win on Monday she'll become just the second South African-born player to win on the LPGA Tour joining 15-time winner Sally Little. She would also become the 19th different player to win on Tour this season and would be the sixth Rolex First-Time Winner in 2014. The 33-year old is coming off her ninth Ladies European Tour win at the Cell C South African Women's Open last week in her home country.
