NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — Heavy morning rain made the course at Wykagyl Country Club unplayable and LPGA Tour officials canceled the third round of the Big Apple Classic at 10:30 a.m., shortening the $900,000 event to 54 holes.

In a 1 1/2-hour period Saturday morning, and inch-and-a-half of rain fell, and the weather forecast called for more rain with Westchester County under a flash flood watch until midday Sunday.

Tour officials said if the leaders did not get through at least nine holes Sunday, the results would revert to the 36-hole scores.
