Inbee Park was hopeful of tough conditions to help her make up an eight-shot deficit at the Women's British Open.

It turned out to be too tough.

An hour before the leaders were to tee off Saturday, play was suspended because of wind so strong that balls were not stopping on the green. Of the nine players who finished their rounds, the best score was a 75.

Park, going after a record fourth professional major in the same year, was 1-under through four holes.

St. Andrews is one of the most difficult links courses in Britain when the wind is strong. The second round at St. Andrews for the British Open was suspended briefly in 2010, the day Rory McIlroy shot 80 one day after his record-tying 63.
