PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas --
The tournament is being playing over 12 holes for three rounds because of severe flooding at the Ocean Club earlier in the week. Even with a short course, the first round took two days to complete because of a three-hour delay Friday with lightning in the area.
Kim finished off a bogey-free round of 6-under 39 with a birdie on the par-4 eighth, which serves as the closing hole. She joined Heather Bowie Young and Silvia Cavalleri in the lead. They finished the opening round Friday.
The plan is to complete three 12-hole rounds to reach 36 holes, the minimum to make this inaugural event official.
