Strange Scores at Pure-Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic

HEATHER BOWIE YOUNG LEADS THE INAUGURAL Pure-Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic after firing a 39. That's right, 39, which is 6-under par. There are also a pair of 40s and a handful of 41s. The first round is still in progress on Paradise Island.

Why the strange scores? Because the 144 ladies are playing 12-hole rounds.

Heavy rains drenched the Ocean Club and only 12 holes are playable. It's the worst flooding in 20 years. Talk about bad timing. Tour officials hope all 18 holes will be playable for Sunday's final round. If not, it might be a 36-hole event.

"At the end of the day, we'll all play the same holes, the same course and be scored the same way," said Stacy Lewis, ranked No. 2 in the world. "That's a golf tournament."
