First day of play postponed at Evian Championship after heavy rainfall

The first day of play at the Evian Championship has been washed out after heavy morning rain soaked the newly-designed course.

Players were on the course for less than one hour before being forced to come off, and organizers decided to postpone further play until Friday.

Top-ranked Inbee Park of South Korea, the defending champion, is looking to become the first professional golfer to win four majors in a year.

The tournament, formerly known as the Evian Masters, is making its debut as the fifth major on the calendar. Over the past year, architects have undertaken a multimillion redesign.
