Play has been suspended for the day at Aramco Team Series Presented by PIF – Korea due to weather conditions with Colombia’s w sitting one shot clear on five-under-par in Seoul. Whilst Team Kang hold the clubhouse lead on 23-under par in the Team event.

With the rain pouring down during round two at New Korea Country Club the horn sounded at 4:15pm on Saturday calling this afternoon’s players in.

This applies to all of Saturday’s afternoon’s groups – 54 players and 18 Teams.

Aramco Team Series - Korea: Team Competition

Over in the Team competition, Danielle Kang’s squad of England’s Lily May Humphreys, China’s Tian Xiaolin and amateur Kyu Ho Lee hold the clubhouse lead on 23-under par.

The Solheim Cup star’s team combined tremendously in the morning carding a round of 16-under-par to move two shots clear of Team Gustavsson.

“I had some of the best teammates,” said Kang after her round. “I mean, we had spirit we had good play, and our amateur crushed it today.  

“It’s just been a really good bonding experience, and all I cared about was just trying to win the team event this week. So, we’re here with a three-shot lead, and that’s really exciting.”

Team Uribe, still with eight holes to play, look like they will be Team Kang’s closest competitors when play resumes on Sunday morning. The squad of Uribe, Austria’s Christine Wolf, Spain’s Maria Hernandez and amateur Joohee Kim are currently five shots back on 18-under-par.
