The third round of the BMW International Open was suspended on Saturday, as persistent heavy rain made the course unplayable. Here is the schedule for the rest of the tournament:
- There will be no more play today. The third round will restart at 07:30 on Sunday. The final round will then begin from the first tee at 09:30, with players playing in groups of three. The final group will tee off at 13:30 and is expected to reach the 18th green at roughly 18:30.
- Tickets for Saturday (excluding the Fairway Club) remain valid for Sunday, so visitors should hang on to their tickets.
- Visitors to the course on Sunday are requested to use the alternative car parks P8/1 and P8/2 in Pulheim. The addresses for sat nav systems are: Parkanlage P8/1: Industriestraße 20, 50259 Pulheim and P8/2: Siemensstraße 2, 50259 Pulheim. A free shuttle bus service will also operate to and from the course.

Quotes from Saturday:
Henrik Stenson (SWE, -11, T1): “It’s been rather wet today. I mean, we play an outdoor sport, you get these every now and again. We’ve got a pretty long day ahead of us tomorrow, but we’ll get it done eventually. When it was a heavy downpour, there was a flood coming over the 18th and the putting green was completely underwater. I didn’t play a single shot today, but the course was definitely not playable in that rain.”
