This one runs Friday thru Sunday, but only Sunday's round will be televised. SBS Golf will carry it Sunday at 10:30 PM and the first replay will on Monday at 2:00 AM (all times local). It's a mid-money event at Y90M, so they'll get a decent turnout, which will include BML, Lu, Sky, Erika, and Big Mama.
The latest SBS Golf sked for Round 3 (local times):

Japan is getting the same wet weather that's hitting the Presidents Cup. They had a big delay in the AM as the last of the 17 threesomes is teeing off at 1:10 PM local time. Another oddity: all the groups are starting from the 10th tee. UPDATE: A translated note on the JLPGA website says they had dense fog in the AM and I think they're only playing nine holes today, #10 thru #18.
You are indeed correct they are playing nine holes - holes 10-18.
This is not unusual for the JLPGA and this event is now a 45 hole tournament due to rain, of interesting note Momoko Ueda won the 2007 event with the event being contested over 27 holes due to bad weather, first round 18 holes, second round washed out and third round 9 holes. she won with a score of 106 - 2 under par!
The weather at the 2015 Stanley Ladies Golf Tournament limited play in the final round to 9 holes, thus reducing the event to 45 holes, but that was all Bo-Mee Lee needed to continue her dominant run through the JLPGA this season. The South Korean star notched her 5th title of the year on the Japanese tour with a 4-under 9 hole final day. She dropped in some exquisite putts, including a longe range bomb on 16, in her bogey-free round. Bo-Mee finished at 12-under, 3 shots clear of Asako Fujimoto and Maiko Wakabayashi. Not that any reenforcement was needed, but Lee asserted her Player of the Year dominance over Teresa Lu as the Taiwanese star followed last week’s missed cut at the Japan Women’s Open with a tie for 33rd at Stanley. Bo-Mee also maintains her lead on the money list. Teresa has led the scoring average race to date, but Lee is chasing her down. The gap between them is razor thin with Lu at 70.2645 and Bo-Mee at 70.2963. Teresa will need to pick things up over the final couple of months of the season or Bo-Mee Lee will be heading towards a 2015 JLPGA Triple Crown.
The JLPGA was slow in updating its stats...what BKB reported above is not current. BML has passed Teresa Lu in scoring average, 70.2036 to 70.3486. Following her Major win on Sept. 13, Lu has completely shriveled up, which is surprising...maybe she's playing hurt. Also, with Y179.5M in earnings, BML broke the 2009 money record of S. Yokomine.
