    Heavy rain throughout Saturday morning pushed back the beginning of play for the third round of the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club in Delaware County, officials said.

    Tee times for the first players were to begin at 12 p.m. after initially scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. It's expected to be a soggy start for the world's best golfers.

    As greenskeepers got the course prepared after a morning of precipitation, spectators were not allowed onto the course until 11:30 a.m.

    Even if the players complete the third round this afternoon, the final round Sunday could be in jeopardy. The NBC10 Weather Team has declared a First Alert for all day Sunday. The championship would have to be decided Monday if Sunday is a washout.

    [PHI] Early Tee Times at BMW Championship

    The best players in golf hit the links early on Friday because of rain. So how did fans feel about seeing Tiger Woods in the area? And who is set to be the champion?

    The players are now grouped in threesomes and their tee times are different than originally scheduled. Here's an updated list of tee times.

    Xander Schauffele shot a 6-under 64 for the lowest 36-hole score of his career and a two-shot lead going into the weekend.

    Tiger Woods went from a share of the lead to having to catch up again.

    Schauffele has gone nearly a year without winning. A victory at Aronimink might even be enough for Jim Furyk to take the 24-year-old from San Diego as the final captain's pick for the Ryder Cup. He was at 13-under 127.

    Justin Rose shot 63 and was two shot back in his bid for a third title in Aronimink. Rose won at the Newtown Square course in 2010 and captured his lone major at Merion in the 2013 U.S. Open.

    One day after a 62, Woods shot 70 and was five behind.
