Round 3 makes room for football


ATLANTA – The third round of the Tour Championship has been bumped up three hours because of college football, with the leaders expected to finish around 3 p.m. (ET).

It could also help the Tour beat an approaching storm, which was fine with Ryan Palmer's caddie James Edmondson, who was happy about the timing.

'If anyone will finish, we will,' said Edmondson. He and Palmer will likely play in the day's first group at 9:30 a.m.
