UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (Feb. 27, 2004) - Six inches of snow fell overnight in Pinehurst, N.C., forcing the first day of the Edwin Watts Carolina Classic to be postponed on Friday.
The Penn State women's golf team hopes to continue its long trip south on Saturday at the par-72, 5,926-yard Pinehurst Course No. 8 at the Carolina Classic. A decision will be made later in the day on Friday whether or not to begin play on Saturday.
