ST. LOUIS — Mother Nature has done what Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis could not on Friday, Aug. 10: slow down Tiger Woods.

Another tweet stated players "must be in position and ready to play at 7:00 a.m. CDT." When Round 3 tees off Saturday, players will be in threesomes and groups will start on both the first and 10th tees in an effort to make up for the time lost in the delay.
