Rain Washes Out Play Reduces Event


GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Inclement weather forced the cancellation of the third round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am at the Cliffs on Saturday.
Tournament officials shortened the event to 54 holes, the first time that has happened on the Nationwide Tour since the 2002 Nationwide Tour Championship.
Australia's Mathew Goggin posted a 7-under 65 on Friday to take the lead through two rounds. He stands at 12-under-par 131 and leads by two over Bubba Watson.
The format features each player joined by an amateur partner or a celebrity, like the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour.
For the first time in Nationwide Tour history, play is spread throughout three courses - The Cliffs Valley Course at the Cliffs Golf & Country Club, The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards and The Cliffs at Walnut Cove. The Cliffs Valley Course is a par-72 layout, while the other two are par 71s.
Goggin's 65 came at the Cliffs Valley Course. Watson shot a 7-under 64 at the Keowee Vineyards Course and is 10 under par for the tournament.
Jon Mills, one of three first-round co-leaders, shot a 2-under 70 at Cliffs Valley and is alone in third place at 9-under-par 134.
Charley Hoffman, Joseph Alfieri, Kyle Thompson, Scott Weatherly, Andrew Johnson and Robert Garrigus, who fired a 10-under-par 62 on Friday at Cliffs Valley, are tied for fourth place at minus-8.
