BMW Championship 2013: Events for Friday, September 13

No, even though the temperatures were in the upper 40’s this morning at Conway Farms Golf Club, there is no snow (despite the bobsledders pictured above) and temperatures are expected to climb to nearly 70 degrees.

Right now it is sunny and a little windy at Conway which should provide for a challenging round and a good day for spectators to walk the course following the leaders or their favorite players.

Although there are still a few tickets remaining, Friday the 13th at Conway Farms Golf Club will most likely be another sell out. Here’s what you’ll see if you are going or otherwise will have to catch on the Golf Channel.

Round Two:

  • Starting Time: 10:20 a.m. from tees 1 and 10
  • Woods, Stenson and Scott scheduled to tee off from 1 at 11:59 a.m.

Beyond Golf:

Team USA Bobsledders  Steve Langton and Curt Tomasevicz to appear at 11 a.m.


The new BMW bobsled will be on display at the BMW Experience. In addition, Team USA bobsledders Steve Langton and Curt Tomasevicz will be on hand to meet with fans starting at 11 a.m. today (Friday, September 13).

BMW’s new two-man bobsled for the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation pictured here  pairs intelligent lightweight materials with optimized aerodynamics. It will be equipped with a fleet of two-man BMW bobsleds to prepare them for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter games and beyond.

Location:  The bobsled and Langton and Tomasevicz will be at the BMW Experience, located on right side of Driving Range.

Ongoing Daily Events:
