After play was suspended during yesterday’s 1st round at 11:58 am due to flooded greens, the Tournament Director Alessandro Pia decided at 2:00 pm to suspend play for the remainder of the day due to the continuous heavy rain fall.

After all night rain and cold temperatures which continued for the entire day, the 1st round resumed at 8:30 am local time and the 1st round afternoon wave tee times began at 9:00 am. Play was able to resume thanks to the unbelievable work performed by the Golf Club Erzherzog Johann- Maria Lankowitz superintendents lead by head superintendent Robert Keusch and his staff: Thomas HackerMatthias SchafferJosef KeuschJohann PölzlGregor Koschar and Stefan Fall.
