Mel Reid is ranked 79th in the world

England's Mel Reid is one shot behind leaders Hannah Green and Cydney Clanton at the shortened Portland Classic.

The tournament was reduced to 54 holes due to poor air quality due to forest fires, while Friday's round was suspended due to darkness with more than a dozen players still on the course.

Australian defending champion Green and American Clanton both shot six-under-par rounds of 66.

] Reid is one of the four players in the clubhouse who are at 67.

Round one resumes Saturday at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.

Dozens of wildfires have burned their way through parts of America's west coast in the past month, killing more than 30 people and tens of thousands people were forced from their homes.

Green, the 2019 Women's PGA Champion, made seven birdies for a bogey at 18.

"I'm super happy that we're done and super happy with my round, ”said the world's number 22, whose round was disrupted by a 90-minute thunderstorm.

"I did my last hole bogey, but clearly did some great things out there. Really well placed so I have to keep up with that. I'm pretty happy to turn over quickly Hopefully I can continue the momentum tomorrow. "

Mirim Lee of South Korea – who won the major last week, the ANA Inspiration – scored a 70 to be in second place next to the Georgia Hall in England, with Bronte Law a shot behind.
