HOYLAKE, England (Sept. 14, 2012) -- Out in Liverpool Bay four windsurfers were making the most of gusts of 25 mph sweeping over the region. Unfortunately, a few competitors in the second round of the $2.5 million Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Liverpool were trying to make the most of trying conditions.

It’s fair to say the windsurfers had a better time.

The Ladies Golf Union made the strange decision to start play at 7 a.m. despite the strong winds. The result? Carnage.

Twelve matches managed to tee off, but the scoreboard looked like the B flight of a club championship rather than a major. England’s Felicity Johnson started her round at 6 over but quickly doubled that in the first two holes. She began with a nine on the 392-yard, par-4 1st hole. She bogeyed the next and double-bogeyed the third to be 8 over for three holes. Caroline Masson’s scorecard read 6-6-6. Not the sign of the beast, just three beastly double bogeys for the German.
