Marc Leishman, meet Tiger Woods
Wednesday, February 9, 2011
LEMONT, Ill. – Not that anyone can see Tiger Woods to begin with – he is, after all, seven strokes ahead – but BMW Championship officials have at least tried to make it a clear fight.
Citing thick, soupy fog at Cog Hill, officials pushed back the start of the fourth round nearly 90 minutes. To adjust to the later start, players will go off of the first and 10th tees in threesomes.
That affords unheralded rookie Marc Leishman the chance to play alongside Woods in the final pairing in a final round. Leishman and Brandt Snedeker are 9 under, while Woods is a whopping 16 under.
Originally, Snedeker had been in the twosome next to Woods.
