Rain delay starts Wyndham early

With rain in the forecast, the third round of the Wyndham

Championship will start early.

PGA Tour rules official Mark Russell said Friday the tee times

for Saturday’s round will be start between 7 a.m. and roughly 9:30

a.m. local time, depending on how many players make the cut.

Players will go off in threesomes starting on both the first and

10th holes.

Russell says planning to finish the round at about 2:30 p.m.

gives organizers some wiggle room in case play is delayed.

The National Weather Service calls for an 80 percent chance of

rain Saturday and says between one-quarter to one-half an inch of

rain is possible.
