Roberto, with his -7 under 65 opening round sits  on top of the BMW Championship leaderboard, as play was suspended due to darkness, an earlier rain storm had caused a delay;

It’s huge, it really is, I would love to be back. “

” It’s an awesome way to end the year.”

“I do better on tougher courses sometimes, it kind of snaps me into focus. And Pete Dye courses, there’s just a lot of shots where it’s do or die.”

“What a difference it makes if you’re pushing downhill instead of uphill.”

“I struggled getting it in play. For a year, it seemed like I was always two over through four holes. You can’t play from there.”

 “More fairways mean more birdie looks and less stress.”

Brian Harman holds second place, a first round -6 under 66 a good way to respond from the nightmare 77 of his last round Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, when he was very much in contention;

“Monday was really hard for me to swallow.”

There are three players tied in third place at -5 under par, Dustin Johnston, Jason Dufner and Chris Kirk all shot 67.

Last weeks winner Rory McIlroy is doing well again, -3 under par thru 10 ten holes. There was an amusing moment on the first tee for World number one Jason Day, as he was introduced as Jordan Day, he broke into a smile and accepted the cheers from the gallery anyway.

Round one will resume tomorrow at 0800 local time.
