Rain Likely to Wash Away 1st Round of the Wegmans LPGA Championship

The word is out that the earliest they can possibly start play at the Wegmans LPGA Championship is 2 pm, but I'm betting the tournament organizers call the whole day off in their planned noon announcement.  The course has already received about a third of an inch of rain and there's a big line of thunderstorms massing in the southwest corner of the state on a northeasterly track to reach Pittford by late afternoon, with no obvious breaks in the rain cover over the entire western NY region in between.  Everybody with an afternoon tee time won't be playing any golf today, so why subject those in the morning wave to radically different conditions than everyone is likely to face the rest of the week?

[Update (12:15 pm):  No golf today is the word from the LPGA twitterverse!]
