Saturday scores

• Sunday’s tee times

With rain suspending the third round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am before the leaders were able to tee off, second-round leader Michael Miller will carry a one-stroke lead into Sunday to begin his third round.

With more than six hours of delays on Friday, the second round resumed on Saturday morning and was completed early in the afternoon. Third-round tee times were scheduled from 2-4:15 p.m., but play was suspended due to heavy rain at 3:05 p.m.

The third round will resume at 7:30 a.m. with the leaders teeing off at approximately 8:35 a.m.

“It feels really good to be leading,” said Miller, who has missed 10 of 12 cuts this year. “I have not been in this situation or even near it at all this year. It feels really good to finally put it all together. I hit the ball really great the last couple of days and made some putts. I have nothing to complain about.”

Miller birdied his last three holes coming in to take the one-stroke lead over Kristoffer Ventura and Chris Baker. After four pars to begin his day, Miller went 9-under over his next 14 holes to post the lowest round of his Web.com Tour career (by two strokes).

Due to significant delays on Friday, Miller teed off in the evening and finished two holes before play was suspended. He resumed his round on the third hole on Saturday morning.

“The warmup was different; I had dinner on the range, that was different,” said Miller. “I had a PB&J. I made myself and my caddie one and we ate dinner on the range together and then we went to the first tee. Then I think I woke up at 6 a.m. today.”

Ventura joins Miller in the final group after finishing his second round on Friday evening. The Oklahoma State product carded a second-round 62, which stands as the low round of the tournament.

* The 36-hole cut was made on Saturday at 6-under 137 with 76 professionals advancing. The cut was the lowest score (in relation to par) of the year, one stroke lower than the LECOM Suncoast Classic (-5).

* The last time a Web.com Tour tournament was shortened to 54 holes was at the 2018 North Mississippi Classic. The last time the BMW Pro-Am was shortened to 54 holes was 2017 (won by Stephan Jaeger).
