PGA Championship 2012: Tee Times And Pairings For Saturday Delayed

If Joost Luiten was looking to make a name for himself, this was certainly not the way to do it. On Friday at the 2012 PGA Championship in South Carolina, Luiten chose to delay the 18th hole of his second round until the following day, citing darkness. Officially, the second round is not yet complete and the third round on Saturday will not begin exactly as scheduled.

Luiten had shot a 5-over through his first 17 holes on Friday and was likely not feeling extremely confident as he headed to the final green. Still, this remains a curious move.

What this ultimately 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.

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.
