2008 BMW Championship: Gustav Is Early Leader

AS I SIT IN THE MEDIA CENTER at the 2008 BMW Championship, the remnants of Gustav pound overhead. Will the heavy duty canvas hold? I think so.

But Padraig Harrington, Jerry Kelly and Scott Verplank will not be hitting the opening shots of this third leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs at 10:40 a.m. Nor will any of the other 70 qualifiers record any strokes today at St. Louis’ Bellerive Country Club.

Gustav is giving all those pretty new BMWs a hard-spray car wash. Several inches of rain are expected to fall throughout the day. They’ll plan to play 36 tomorrow, although I’m not sure what this deluge will do to Bellerive.

UPDATE:
They plan to play 18 on Friday, 36 on Saturday, and 18 on Sunday. After Thursday's deluge, the course needs some work.
