Sung Hyun Park and Jenny Shin finished the rain-delayed first round of the abbreviated LPGA Texas Classic with a one-stroke lead, but a host of players including Australia's Minji Lee are in contention for victory.

The first round was postponed from Thursday after only 34 golfers completed one or two holes because of morning rain and afternoon wind.

With rain giving her a chance to tee off earlier, she got to play her first round on Saturday and had to begin her second round, which has also become the tournament's final round, on the same day. Those scores were scrapped and the tournament finally re-started on Friday, but the conditions remained so poor that organizers told ticket-holders to stay home.

Rules official Marty Robinson said the decisions to halt Thursday's play after just over an hour and then to reduce the tournament to two rounds were "tough choices". Her back nine was almost unblemished as it went bogey-free, with Aditi hitting birdies on the par-four 10th, par-five 11th, par-three 12th and par-five 15th. Ashok will pick up her final round on hole 15. Friday's forecast calls for more rain. I feel I was able to read the greens much better than the last few weeks on the West Coast.

While the front nine of the second round began with a bogey on the par-four 3rd for the 20-year old, she scored a birdie immediately after in her next shot on the par-five 4th.

This was her third overall and second consecutive top-10 finish - she finished tied-7th at Lake Merced last week - on the LPGA. On Saturday, she birdied the par-3 seventh and the par-4 ninth. She began the second-round bogey-birdie but followed with birdies at the fourth, fifth and eighth.
