GREENVILLE, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -

After part of the first round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am golf tournament was rained out Thursday, the players will return to the greens early Friday to finish their rounds.

As night rolled in, round one play was suspended at 8:56 p.m. Thursday. Those who still had holes left will pickup play again at 7:45 a.m. Friday at Thornblade County Club and Green Valley Country Club.

Thursday's play was delayed by a four-hour rain delay, but the forecast is looking up for the rest of the tournament. The pro-am runs through Sunday at Thornblade, Green Valley and The Reserve at Lake Keowee golf courses.

The professional and amateur pairings will tee off for round two starting at 10 a.m. Friday. Several of the amateur competitors are celebrities, including 24's Dennis Haysbert, Greg Ellis and Gregory Itzin. All amateurs are partnered with professional golfers from the Web.com tour.
