PGA Championship 2012: Tee Times And Pairings For Saturday Are Delayed

Sometimes one sour apple can ruin everyone's fun. That's what happened on Saturday at the 2012 PGA Championship, as Joost Luiten opted not to play the 18th hole of his second round. Luiten, who had already shot 5-over for the day and plunged down the leaderboard, halted his play, citing darkness.

What this means is that the tee times for Saturday's scheduled third round in South Carolina cannot -- and will not -- be released until all golfers finish their second round. This means Luiten is holding up the entire tournament schedule, more or less.

Luiten will return to play his 18th hole at 4:30 a.m. PT. The tee times for the full third round on Saturday will be released about an hour later.
