EDISON, N.J. – This probably won’t come as a surprise but we likely won’t get the first round of The Barclays finished on Thursday.
The final group of Arjun Atwal, Padraig Harrington and William McGirt aren’t slated to tee off No. 1 until 4:35 p.m. ET. But if Mother Nature cooperates, they could make considerable progress toward completion of their opening 18 holes.
The weather forecast for Friday is good with partly cloudy skies on the horizon and the rain expected to hold off until Saturday afternoon. Of course, the main event arrives on Sunday when Hurricane Irene blows into the area.
