BMW Championship tee times, TV info for Saturday’s third round

It’s moving day at the BMW Championship, the second leg of the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoffs.

There is no cut this week at Olympia Fields Country Club outside Chicago. The 69-man field heads to the third round on Saturday.

This second playoff event is playing akin to a U.S. Open, a very difficult U.S. Open, mind you, as thick rough, lightning fairways, firm, sloping greens and heat from above have combined to deliver one of the most difficult exams these players have ever faced.

There’s no cut this week but after 36 holes, the projected FedEx Cup standings are sorting some things out. Namely, we’re getting a sense of who needs to do what over the weekend if he wants to advance.

At the conclusion of the tournament, the top 30 golfers in the points standings advance.

From tee times to TV info, here’s what you need to know for the second round of the BMW Championship.
