Rains from remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine cancel LPGA Pro-Am in northwestern Arkansas

Heavy rain from the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine has forced the cancellation of the pro-am at the LPGA's P&G Northwest Arkansas Championship.

The tournament issued a statement Thursday saying the rounds were canceled to ensure the safety of those involved and to maintain playing conditions of the course.

The 54-hole tournament runs Friday through Sunday at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa said three to five inches of rain had fallen in northwestern Arkansas since midnight.
