Volcanic Eruption Strands Group of LPGA Stars in Bali

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.

Two LPGA stars might miss their next tee time, but they have a pretty good excuse.

According to the Golf Channel, Azahara Munoz and Beatriz Recari are stranded in Bali after a volcano erupted on a nearby island, resulting in the closure of several airports in Indonesia, including the one the LPGA pros had planned to leave from on Tuesday night.

Munoz and Recari were in Bali with fellow golfers Jessica Korda and So Yeon Ryu for a Lexus Cup corporate event. Korda and Ryu were scheduled to return home, while Munoz and Recari are supposed to be en route to Tokyo for the Toto Japan Classic, but if the flight delays continue, they might not make it in time.

Despite the crowded airports and looming Friday tee times, the group seems to making the best of their extra days in Bali. Munoz shared a photo of herself, Korda, and Ryu soaking in a hot tub under palm trees and blue skies. There are, it seems, worse places to get stuck.
