8:25 pm Update: Jordan Spieth will be in the Thursday afternoon broadcast window, teeing off at 2:00 pm EDT. He’s playing with Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas! Tiger Who?
5:10 pm: Rory is teeing off at 3:00 am EDT on Thursday and 8:00 am EDT on Friday. That coincides with Golf Channel live coverage on Thursday. It looks like they are shifting Morning Drive on Friday to give us Rory’s round then as well. Looks promising. He’s playing with Fowler and Kaymer. Watch for Justin Ray to produce a stupidstic on Rory’s performance when playing with two “er” golfers.
We’re still waiting for the field strengths. We’ll bring them to you as soon as they are available (unless the Byron Nelson has a stronger field, in which case we’ll never mention it again).
