The 2012 Barclays tournament began Thursday morning at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y., with the typical stars in attendance. The television coverage won't begin until the afternoon,however -- despite play beginning just after 7 a.m.
The Golf Channel is scheduled to extend its coverage from three hours to four, beginning at 2 p.m. ET. That won't be early enough to catch the final holes of the golfers that teed off early Thursday -- Tigers Woods, Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson and the like -- but there should be plenty of time to get some highlights in over the course of Thursday's televised broadcast.
As far as tee times are concerned, our friends over at SB Nation have put together the handiest list on the Internet for those interested in checking out which golfer is teeing off where, when and with who.
