The BMW Championship resumes on Friday with earlier-than-usual tee times as the threat of severe weather looms in the afternoon. The four-way tie atop the leaderboard will look to sort itself out before storms enter the area. Rory McIlroy, Bo Van Pelt, Webb Simpson and Graham DeLaet are tied at 8-under. DeLaet played his college golf for the Boise St. Broncos.
DeLaet started his first round on the back nine and sank five birdies while only making only one bogey. He started the last nine holes with back-to-back birdies, making it four straight holes he went under-par. He closed out his round with an eagle on the ninth hole.
Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh are close behind at 7-under. Colorado State alumnus Martin Laird shot 3-under to finish the first round in a tie for 29th.
