— The first day of practice at the U.S. Women's Open was a total washout Monday in Southern Pines.

The tournament is being played this week at the Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club.

All of Monday's events were cancelled, but tickets will be honored during practice rounds on Tuesday or Wednesday.

The four-day tournament begins Thursday when 150 players will compete for $2.9 million in prize money.
