CARMEL, Ind. – Roberto Castro still holds a one-shot lead after the weather-delayed first round of the BMW Championship, but there are plenty of stars close behind.

Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson all finished off 4-under 68s Friday morning at Crooked Stick to sit just three shots back of Castro.

The second round is already underway, as tee times were moved up with the anticipation of more inclement weather in the afternoon.

Play was delayed by more than three hours Thursday because of heavy rain. Several players took advantage of the softer conditions (and preferred lies) to get off to a fast start.

Castro, who is winless in 125 career starts on Tour, has a one-shot lead over Brian Harman, with Dustin Johnson and Jason Dufner among the group at 5 under, just two shots back.
