The event, as well as the Championship proper, will be rescheduled. The 101st Team Championship was initially slated for June 24 at LedgeRock Golf Club.
GAP first suspended play at 1:22 p.m. due to lightning in the area Tuesday. Players returned to the course at 3:36 p.m. The horn sounded again an hour later, thereby forcing a cancelation for the day.
Team Championship Qualifying determines which four GAP Member Clubs will compete in the Team Championship. Participants must field at least six players to be eligible. The low four scores of each team make up the qualifying total. In the event of a tie, the fifth player’s score is used.
The Championship proper features eight-man teams playing an alternate shot format in the morning, with singles matches in the afternoon.
