Not even a late-April tournament date could spare the Pac-12 Championship from some typical Colorado weather. The second round of Pac-12s at Boulder Country Club was suspended Saturday because of, yep, snow. There was a 30-minute snow delay on Friday before most teams were able to finish their second rounds. Scores reflected the difficult conditions, as players wrapped up Friday in 25-degree temperatures with a snow/sleet mix. Only two players are under par – Oregon’s Wyndham Clark and Washington’s Carl Yuan, with two holes to play in their second round – and the defending champion Ducks lead the way at 16 over par. Top-ranked USC is 31 over after two rounds of the play-six, count-five format.
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Lydia Ko has withdrawn from the LPGA tournament in Texas because of an eye infection and could lose the No. 1 ranking she has held for 79 straight weeks. Ko was 1-over after the first two days and pulled out before Saturday's third round of the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout. Her agent said in a statement that Ko has a swollen eye from an infection, likely caused by allergies that have been bothering her all week. A doctor advised Ko not to wear contact lenses until she got better. Ko could be overtaken in the Rolex Rankings by No. 2 So Yeon Ryu or No. 3 Ariya Jutanugarn. Ryu becomes No. 1 if she finishes first or second. Jutanguran started the second round a stroke
