Futures Tour event hit by bad weather

First-round play of the US Duramed Futures Tour's $110,000 Turkey Hill Classic was suspended due to rain rendering the course unplayable. Play was suspended at 11:50 a.m local time as over an inch of rain fell on the already saturated course at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
"Today's rain, along with the rain we had earlier in the week, was too much for the course to handle," said Christy Barks, Vice-president of Tournament Operations. "The course is just too wet to continue play and we'll resume Saturday to allow time for it to drain."
Hannah Yun of Bradenton, Florida was leading at the time of suspension, at 4-under-par, through nine holes.
Samantha Richdale of Kelowna, British Columbia, and Ashley Prange of Noblesville, Ind., share a tie for second at 3-under-par, also through nine holes.
First-round competition of the inaugural Turkey Hill Classic, presented by Felicita Garden Resort and Spa, will resume Saturday at 8 am local time. The second round is expected to start at 1:40 p.m. EDT. Players will not be paired by score, but will remain in their first-round pairings.
