Severe weather is threatening to cast a pall over the 2012 BMW Championship. With rain in the forecast at the Crooked Stick golf club, golfers and fans alike will have to pray the course is playable over the weekend.
If things hold up, however, we could have a good one on our hands in Carmel, Indiana. Vijay Singh shot a six-under 66 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead into the weekend. Hot on his tail, however, are World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and of course, Tiger Woods.
As of now, things are still a go for Saturday, although they have been time-shifted. The first threesomes of the weekend are now expected to tee off around 11 a.m. EST––nearly three hours after they were originally expected to.
Here's the new schedule of Saturday tee times (leading threesomes are in bold):
|Time||Golfer #1||Golfer #2||Golfer #3|
|11:33 am||Laird||Schwartzel||de Jonge|
|12:50 pm||Woods||Westwood||Van Pelt|
The broadcast schedule looks like this:
Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012
NBC—12:00-3:30 p.m. EDT
Golf Channel—3:30-6:00 p.m. ET
Golf Channel—9:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m. ET
That is all weather pending, of course. Thus far, no updates have been given as to how the delayed tee times will affect the broadcast. So for all intents and purposes, you can plan on watching the action there.
