The women headed to Hill Top early on Wednesday to try and beat the predicted high temperatures. Lightning and thunder put paid to that at 7:15 when the first few groups were called back to the clubhouse. Next there was 10 millimetres of rain in 10 minutes and the greens were underwater, the power went off, so it was everyone into the clubhouse until 9am.
