As if the pressure of putting while trying to win your first LPGA title wasn’t enough, Belen Mozo found herself dodging flying signs – yes, flying signs among other objects and debris – during the final round of the Mckayson New Zealand Women’s Open yesterday. Play was suspended at 5:16 local time in Auckland, but not before this crazy scene unfolded showing just how dangerous the conditions created by gale-force winds in the area were:
And Mozo, the 54-hole leader of the event, wasn’t alone in voicing her displeasure. Here’s what Brittany Lincicome tweeted about how things were handled:
Mozo was two-over through six holes when play was stopped, falling into a tie for second with Lincicome. Meanwhile, Brooke Henderson incredibly birdied three of the six holes she played in the adverse conditions. She’ll take a four-shot lead into today when the tournament will hopefully be concluded. If it can’t be, and it’s shortened to 54 holes, Mozo would be the winner.
