This follows the heavy rains at Southbroom Golf Club on Saturday and the subsequent postponement of play, which has forced the tournament to be reduced to 36 holes. The cut was made based on the Round 1 scores.
According to Ladies European Tour Tournament Director, Yvonne Cassidy, "The volume of rain that has fallen is unprecedented in this region at this time of year and unfortunately the forecast for tonight and early morning gives little respite. Monday is not a viable option for anyone involved in staging the event. This decision was not taken lightly and followed deep deliberation, and in consultation with the WPGA and the promoters of the event World Sports Promotions."
The host venue for the tournament will be Southbroom Golf Club.
19 - 21 April 2013
