The Symetra Tour has announced that the first round of its IOA Golf Classic in Longwood, Fla., has been postponed from Friday to Saturday due to the approach of Hurricane Matthew.
The tour still hopes to complete a 54-hole event with a Monday finish still a possibility for the second-to-last event on the schedule. Next week’s season-ending Symetra Tour Championship in Daytona Beach will see the top 10 on the money list at the conclusion of play graduate to the LPGA Tour next season.
Canadians in the field for this week’s IOA Golf Classic include Brittany Marchand, Samantha Richdale, Augusta James, Sara-Maude Juneau, Lorie Kane, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Sue Kim, Jessica Wallace and Jennifer Kirby.
