PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Coming into the day, Katherine Perry didn’t even know if she would have the chance to play golf. Constant, heavy rain flooded Blythefield Country Club in Belmont to the point where the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give had no choice but to delay tee times. Puddles were building on the fairways and putting greens had visible water. Hole 14 had to be adjusted from 530 to 400 yards due to standing water in the middle. When the rain finally let up, Perry and the rest of the field teed off seven hours after their original start times. While the water slowed play down, it didn’t stop what Perry had to offer in the first round. Perry finished six under par after 18 holes in the first round of a delayed start on Thursday. She tied with Jenny Shin for the lead. This comes after a shaky 2018 campaign when she only made three of 10 events she tried out for. After being cut for the Kia Classic in March, Perry has turned her tour around. She has now made the cut for three consecutive tournaments, finishing tied for ninth in the Pure Silk Championship presented by Visit Williamsburg and tied for 26th in the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer. After day one at the Meijer Classic, she feels she’s showing progress from the work she puts in. “I’ve been just working really hard on my swing with my coach and just having the opportunity to be out here,” Perry said. “I’m here with this opportunity to play and I’m looking forward to taking advantage of it.” Right out of the gate, Perry did just that. Three of her first four holes were birdies, including a near 30-foot putt. It got her ahead of the pack quickly. Perry later said those holes were huge to her confidence on the greens. After a bogey on hole six, Perry regrouped to get birdies on three of the next four holes. Following three straight pars, she countered a birdie on hole 14 with a bogey on hole 15. After paring hole 17, she finished with a birdie on 18 and a smile. After eight total birdies, it was without a question it was a momentum boost. “I have to go hit golf shots tomorrow just like I did today and see where it gets me,” Perry said. Perry started her day around 5 a.m. before hearing the rounds would be delayed. She took a nap and woke up only to find out the tee times were still getting pushed back. While it was an odd start for the three-year pro, she said everyone had the same day. “You kind of just have to take it as it is and go play golf,” she said.

RORY McILROY was named among a group of stars ready to boycott the US Open over a series of fiascos. And one top golfer warned the threat still exists, saying US Golf Association chiefs cannot afford another disaster when the event is staged at Pebble Beach next month. Rory McIlroy was named among a group of golfers ready to boycott the US Open The unidentified golfer, described as a multiple PGA Tour winner, was quoted in Golf Digest: “If they f*** up Pebble Beach, I can see players not going back. That’s America’s St Andrews.” Discussions about a player boycott first took place after the USGA were savaged over a controversial penalty imposed on eventual winner Dustin Johnson at Oakmont in 2016. The American — who was also said to be in favour of ‘strike action’ — was told he was likely to be punished because his ball moved before he took a putt on the fifth green. He then had to play the rest of the final round ‘in limbo’ before the USGA announced a one-shot penalty AFTER the event was over. It followed a string of controversial course set-ups according to players who spoke to Golf Digest on condition they would not be named. One said: “We had about ten to 15 guys who were willing to sit out after 2016. “Some of them were big names — Dustin was one, Rory was another.” ‘WITHOUT US THEY DON’T HAVE A TOURNAMENT’ The Johnson farce came just a year after the greens at Chambers Bay in Washington state were likened to “putting on broccoli” by Henrik Stenson. Last year’s US Open at Shinnecock Hills was also slammed when the USGA admitted they “went too far” in toughening it up. Phil Mickelson lost his cool and hit his ball while it was still moving, to prevent it running off the super-slick greens. Golf Digest quoted two Major champs, one of them a ‘former world No 1’ — which could apply to both McIlroy and Johnson — saying they were “absolutely” prepared to join a boycott. Another player said: “I figure we needed about 25 guys and could have gotten there based on what I was hearing. “Just one would have done it but Tiger Woods wasn’t playing at the time. Without us, they don’t have a tournament.” Meanwhile, English golfer Bronte Law sealed a wire-to-wire win at the Pure Silk Championship in Virginia for her first LPGA Tour success. The Stockport golfer, 24, is now one of the favourites to win the Women’s US Open in Charleston starting on Thursday. She carded a final-round four-under-par 67 to clinch a two-shot win and a £153,000 first prize. [article-rail-section title=”Latest golf news” posts_category=”340″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] Fellow English star Charley Hull raced on to the final green to spray her with shaving cream! Law said: “I’m absolutely ecstatic — but I was still finding bits of shaving cream all over my body hours later!”  Turkish Airlines now operate daily flights from Gatwick to the golf hub of Antalya — and carries golf clubs free.
