LPGA Pros Stuck in Bali Forced to WD After Volcanic Eruption

LPGA Stars Trapped in Bali After Volcano Erupts
LPGA players Beatriz Recari and Azahara Munoz are stuck in Bali and in danger of missing the Japan Classic after a nearby volcanic eruption shut down the local airport.

A volcano made life (sort of ) difficult for some LPGA pros this week. 

Days after the Indonesian island volcano Mount Rinjani erupted, the blast has deterred travel to and from the area for many people, pro golfers included. Jessica Korda, Beatriz Recari, Azahara Munoz and So Yeong Ryu were all stuck on Bali, a nearby island, as ash, smoke and debris left the surrounding area unsafe for air travel.

That meant Recari and Munoz were unable to make it to Japan for the first round of the Toto Japan Classic and were forced to withdraw. Luckily, they all still had each other. The group all made it very clear via social media they were trying to leave Bali, but were definitely not uncomfortable hanging out for a few more days on the tropical island. There are worse places to be stranded.
