American star Cristie Kerr had much less to complain about when she returned to Hoylake following Friday's total wipe-out.
Given the chance to start her second round again, Kerr moved only one behind Korean leaders So Yeon Ryu and Haeji Kang at the Ricoh Women's British Open.
Gusts of up to 60mph had made it a nightmare for the early starters 24 hours earlier, but after 78 minutes of mayhem officials then decided to cancel the day's play and declare all scores void.
Although it was still windy when the championship resumed the Royal Liverpool links was clearly playable again and former world number one Kerr followed a bogey at the short 15th - her sixth - with birdies at the 16th and 18th.
Ryu went ahead on her own when she picked up a two at the 138-yard 13th, but then took six down the long 16th to fall back alongside her compatriot Kang, one of the day's later starters.
It is hoped to play the final 36 holes on Sunday and to make that more likely only the top 50 and ties were going to survive the halfway cut rather than the usual 65.
Also going well was Japan's Mika Miyazato, who matched Kerr's back nine 36 to join Ry and Kang, but being able to start the round all over again did not help England's last winner Karen Stupples.
She managed only a front nine 41 and when she also bogeyed the 12th and 13th the Kent golfer stood 12 over and virtually resigned to an early exit.
Britain's best-known woman golfer Laura Davies was only two better than that with eight holes remaining and so also looked like bowing out of her 100th major.
