Weather forces women's open into fifth day

Belen Mozo leaps for joy at scoring a hole-in-one but the car on offer for an ace is only eligible to be won at the weekend

Belen Mozo will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the LPGA Tour's New Zealand Women's Open on Sunday.

Play was repeatedly suspended Sunday because of adverse weather conditions and finally called for the day at 5:30 p.m. local time when a violent squall brought heavy rain and winds which sent advertising boards flying across greens.

Mozo, who led by five strokes after the second round, is at 15-under after three rounds at the Windross Farm Golf Course.

The New Zealand Women's Open will go into a fifth day, with event organisers hellbent on playing out a full 72 holes of golf.

When play was eventually abandoned for the day, she was three-under after six holes and 17-under for the week.

She bogeyed again when play resumed after the second disruption to be two-over after six on 13-under, level with American Brittany Lincicome who was two-under for the round.

The 20-year-old bagged birdies on the first and second holes, placing herself in top-five contention, until early morning rainfall blunted her momentum.

Norway's Nicole Broch Larsen and China's Jing Yan are tied for fourth place at 12-under after nine and seven holes respectively.

Kiwi superstar and former world No.1 Lydia Ko is eight shots off the pace in ninth, flattering to deceive after roaring out of the blocks early.

The first players were off at 7:40 a.m. and the leaders had just teed off at 10 a.m. when rain and standing water forced play to be suspended for the first time. Jessica Korda, who played 2-under golf before play was suspended and scores were surprisingly canceled, said she never felt more afraid on a golf course as she and playing partner Laura Davies crouched in place as 45 miles per hour winds blew through.

LPGA rules director Bo Ream told reporters the players had a "mixed" reaction to the decision, with many forced to reschedule worldwide flights. "We've decided we're going to go 72 holes".
