AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Play was suspended in the first round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur on Wednesday afternoon as a thunderstorm moved into the Augusta area.

This is the second time ever the tournament has been played. It was called off last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first two days of competition are being held at champion’s retreat golf club.
