CARMEL, Ind. -- Roberto Castro wants nothing more than to go home to Atlanta, and he tk a soggy step in the right direction Thursday in the BMW Championship.Castro was just as gd before the rain as he was after the storms cleared at Crked Stick, running off eight birdies until a bogey on his last hole for a 7-under 65 and the temporary lead.Storms and heavy rain caused a 3 1/2-hour delay and changed the nature of Crked Stick from fast and firm to greens that were soft and accessible. The delay meant that just under half of the 69-man field finished the round.The first round was to resume at 8 a.m. Friday, with more bad weather in the forecast.Brian Harman got right back into gear. He was in position to potentially lock up his spot in the Tour Championship until closing with a 77 from the final group at the TPC Boston on Monday. He opened with a 66 after recording an eagle on the par-5 15th hole and no bogeys on his card.U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson was within one shot of the lead until he sent his drive into the lake to the right of the 18th fairway and made bogey, giving him a 67 along with Jason Dufner.Among those still on the course, Chris Kirk was at 5 under at the turn, while Hideki Matsuyama, Paul Casey and Adam Scott were at 4 under on the back nine. Casey had the 54-hole lead last week at the TPC Boston.Castro went to Georgia Tech and still lives in Atlanta, about 15 minutes from East Lake. Thats the destination for everyone in the field whos trying to get into the top 30 in the FedEx Cup and advance to the Tour Championship for a shot at the $10 million bonus.Castro, who has yet to win on the PGA Tour, made it to the Tour Championship in 2013 with a pair of top 10s in the playoffs.I told myself the last two weeks really to play like I had nothing to lose, and to make a bunch of birdies is a gd way to start, Castro said. Sure, its a hometown tournament for me. Its the hardest one to get to, unfortunately, but its still a great tournament. I would love to be back.He is at No. 53 in the FedEx Cup and likely would need to finish fourth at Crked Stick to have a chance.The BMW Championship is back at Crked Stick for the first time since 2012, when Rory McIlroy won on a rain-softened course. This time, it was blazing hot during the pro-am Wednesday, and players had a lk at how tough it could play -- at least until the rain.Jason Day played a wedge out of the rough on the second hole, landed it some 30 feet short of the pin and watched it race across the green and into thick rough. After the delay, it was an entirely different golf course. Patrick Reed, who is leading the FedEx Cup, hit a short iron out of dense rough that plopped down 12 feet from the cup.The course could be attacked, and thats what the players did.McIlroy, coming off a victory at the TPC Boston, was at 3 under through 10 holes. Jordan Spieth was at 2 under, both birdies on par 5s on the front nine.But it was another struggle for Rickie Fowler, who was bidding for a Ryder Cup captains pick. After squandering a chance to make the U.S. team at The Barclays, Fowler was in the middle of the pack at the Deutsche Bank Championship and opened the BMW Championship with a 75.Bubba Watson, also hopeful of a pick, was 1 under through 13 holes. He followed three straight birdies with three straight bogeys on the front nine.Day, meanwhile, is set for the Tour Championship and assured of being in the top five in the FedEx Cup, meaning he would only have to win at East Lake to claim the cup and its lucrative bonus. The Australian lked out of sorts after the rain delay, however, missing fairways, missing greens and missing putts. The frustration mounted on the 16th green, when he flipped his ball into the water after his third bogey on the back nine.Days biggest putt came on the next hole, however, a birdie from 25 feet that he struck before Reed could even mark his ball. It stopped Days slide, sure. But it allowed him to head over to the 18th tee and hit his shot to make sure his group finished before the horn sounded to stop play.DIVOTS: Dustin Johnson switched to a square-faced mallet putt like the one Jason Day uses. ... Brks Koepka, who is No. 30 in the FedEx Cup, was 3 under through 14 holes when play was stopped. ... British Open champion Henrik Stenson is the only player missing from Crked Stick. He wanted two weeks off to rest his right knee and be fresh for the Ryder Cup. Ryan Getzlaf Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Ryan Kesler Jersey .

Hampus Lindholm Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Jean-Sebastien Giguere Ducks Jersey . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue.
