England remain top of International Crown group

Georgia Hall

England remained top of their pool at the typhoon-hit International Crown event in South Korea after no play was possible on the third day.

England sit above South Korea in Pool A and need a top-two finish to make the final singles round.

Fourball pairs Bronte Law and Jodi Ewart Shadoff, and Charley Hull and Georgia Hall both beat their Taiwanese opponents on Friday.

Friday’s tee times had been brought forward because of Typhoon Kong-rey.

The United States lead Pool B on six points after the defending champions beat Thailand in their two early matches, while Sweden sit two points behind following a split of their games against Japan.

Law and Shadoff comfortably saw off Candie Kung and Phoebe Yao 6&4 on Friday, while Hull and British Open champion Hall won 2&1 against Hsu Wei-ling and Teresa Lu at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon before bad light suspended play early.
