Tee times for the second round of the 2012 BMW Championship have been pushed up three hours on Friday as a precaution for forecasted afternoon thunderstorms in the Indianapolis area. Threesomes will go off both sides at Crooked Stick, running consecutively in one morning session from 8 a.m. to 10:01 a.m. ET. Pete Dye's original was already soaked from heavy rain over the weekend, forcing the Tour to enact lift, clean, and place. As always, a Monday finish is about the least desirable option so the Tour wants to ensure the field is cut in half before the weekend.
The powerhouse grouping of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Nick Watney will tee off at 9:39 a.m. ET, going off No. 10. McIlroy is on fire once again, firing darts all Thursday at the receptive greens. He is tied with three others for the lead at 8-under.
Golf Channel will carry the broadcast of the second round from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET. Due to the change in times, the entire broadcast should be tape-delayed action from the morning. A complete schedule of tee times below:
