Most of the top golfers in the world teed off earlier today for the third round of the BMW Championship. Unfortunately, the weather is playing a factor for this weekend.

With the conditions on the course perfect this morning, a handful of golfers capitalized and made a charge toward the top of the leaderboard.

Both Tiger Woods and Gary Woodland have done an incredible job of making a push in this third round. However, all the momentum building for those that teed off in the morning has come to a halt.

Play at the BMW Championship in Medinah is suspended for now due to inclement weather. The forecast shows lightening in the area.

The PGA will provide an update to those in attendance as to when play will be resumed.

For now, the players are in the clubhouse waiting for the weather to clear.

While play is currently suspended at Medinah Country Club, the expectation is that it won't be a long delay. It'll be interesting to see how this delay affects the leaderboard for this afternoon. Hideki Matsuyama is on top of the leaderboard with an impressive score of 12-under-par. He set a course record on Friday by shooting a 9-under 63. Update: The BMW Championship is expected to resume at 1:45 p.m. ET.

We'll see if this delay that lasted just over an hour will negatively affect the golfers coming out of the clubhouse.

Not only are players competing to win this PGA event, they're trying to secure their spot at the Tour Championship.
