PGA Championship: Sunday schedule, tee times after play suspended Saturday

PGA Championship: Sunday schedule, tee times after play suspended Saturday”

The 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black on Long Island also was forced to Monday by rain.

Instead, it was a washout.

Such a round may not come on Saturday, as the threat of lightning in the area caused a suspension of play before co-leaders Walker and Streb had teed off.

Only 18 of the 43 groups finished.

There were 10 golfers, including Walker and Day, who played 36 holes Sunday after the third round was suspended Saturday after heavy rains saturated the course.

Lea Michele: 'I love myself, flaws and all'
Michele paid tribute to Monteith , her late boyfriend and Glee co-star, by getting his Glee character's name, Finn , tattooed. Michele says she makes "some macaroni cheese, calls my mom, pours a glass of red wine and watches some reality television".

Play is scheduled to resume at 7am (1100 GMT) today with 49 of 86 players who made the cut yet to complete their third rounds.

"Our primary aim is to finish [this] evening", Kerry Haigh, the PGA of America's championship officer said.

The leaders of the PGA Championship are on the course for the fourth round. Forecasters called for rain Saturday night, Sunday and into Monday. The final round was set to begin at 8:40 a.m. with leaders teeing off at 3:25 p.m.

To save time, the groups will not be rearranged based on score before the final round. And with little wind, players can go after flagsticks, which also means fewer lengthy putts on the undulating surfaces that test the pros' ability to read lines. Padraig Harrington and Kevin Kisner were two of 37 players who managed to finish their third round on Saturday and they did it in style, shooting five-under 65s to move up the leaderboard.

None of the early starters to the third round of the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club finished with a round worse than par.

"That will actually be an interesting dynamic for sure", Haigh said.

And, while hindsight is 20-20, it could have been avoided. "When guys are going to play good, they are going to play good".

“The course looks like it is unplayable, ” Streb said during Saturdays delay. It was hoped the storm would pass and allow completion of the third round.

And he said it before thunderstorms ended play for the day at 2:14 p.m. He is tied for 10th at four-under par and provided steady consistency with five birdies and no bogeys on Saturday.
