Play was suspended at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic Friday due to rain during Round 2.  

Roughly 80 players have at least some of their second round left to play. The last group out today only made it through four holes before the horn telling them to pack it in was sounded.

Even if play resumes Friday night, it is unlikely that they would be able to get everyone through 18 holes before dark. Those who have not finished their rounds will be forced to do so early Saturday morning.  

So far officials believe it will not affect Round 3 from getting underway.

Rain was already affecting the scores at the Classic this week. Soft greens made for score friendly conditions.  

Australian Katherine Kirk  took advantage of those favorable opportunities by posting a day two 63. Kirk currently leads the tournament at -13 under par.
