Busy Friday on tap after weather issues at BMW


CARMEL, Ind. – First-round play at the BMW Championship was suspended at 7:56 p.m. ET Thursday because of darkness.

The opening round at Crooked Stick is scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. Friday.

Play was suspended for three and a half hours Thursday after heavy rain dropped nearly an inch of rain and made the course unplayable in spots.
