"I had a lot of momentum going yesterday," said Webb, who was all smiles after draining an uphill birdie putt on the ninth hole. "When play was stopped I made a couple birdies to get back to one under par."
Webb, like Ai Miyazato, was fortunate enough to resume her first round this morning with a putt. But Cristie Kerr, who posted an even-par 71, faced a long bunker shot on the seventh hole.
"The rain delay hurt me," said Kerr, who's planning to work on her swing with her golf instructor. "I didn't start in a good spot on the 7th. A long unker shot to a tough pin is not how you want to come out. But that's the hand I got dealt. Then my first swing of the day I didn't make a good swing, got a really bad bounce and had about as difficult an up and down you could have on this golf course."
"I'd say it's almost more than likely that we won't play today because they're calling for more storms," said Webb. "But you've gotta prepare that maybe you'll play one or two holes."
The stop-and-go action, while annoying, has become intrinsic to a U.S. Women's Open.
"Stopping and starting makes it hard to keep your rhythm," said Ai Miyazato. "But this happens almost every year at the U.S. Open. I'm used to it."
