BMW Championship: Tee times, Round 3
Friday, September 13, 2013
A day after shooting 12-under 59 at the BMW Championship, Jim Furyk finds himself in the final group for Saturday's third round at Conway Farms near Chicago.
Furyk, who is 11 under, will tee off at 12:50 p.m. local time along with co-leader Brandt Snedeker.
But that pairing will likely not be the most talked about on Saturday. That's because Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia will tee off together at 11:50 a.m. Garcia apologized for insensitive remarks at Woods' expense in May, when Garcia said he would invite Woods to dinner every night during the U.S. Open and "serve fried chicken." Woods responded via Twitter, "I'm confident that there is real regret the remark was made." The European Tour's chief executive soon went on to make remarks that then drew an apology from his organization. When the U.S. Open arrived, Garcia shook Woods' hand on the practice range and said he left a note of apology in Woods' locker at Merion.
The Woods-Garcia group comes on the heels of a two-stroke penalty for Woods on Friday that left both at 4 under for the tournament.
Other pairings of note in this week's no-cut event include FedEx Cup points leader Henrik Stenson with reigning U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, Webb Simpson with Bubba Watson and Ernie Els with Billy Horschel.
