Rory McIlroy, Billy Horschel and the rest of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Friday will start with the first strike.

The organizers of the DP World Tour event have decided that all competitors will start at the same time due to the bad weather that is expected around the three participating fields during the 2nd round. Players will start at 8:30 local time.

This is the second time in less than a month that one of the tour’s events has been forced to start with a shotgun due to extenuating circumstances. Earlier in September, the BMW PGA Championship was shortened to 54 holes and began immediately after the death of HM Queen Elizabeth.

“In weather like this, it seems to me that Kingsbarns is the easiest rotation route, but when the weather changes, it becomes the most difficult,” McIlroy said. “It is open and there is a lot of greenery up there. Hopefully it’s not too windy and the balls don’t start rolling all over the place. Hopefully tomorrow we’ll do it, but we’ll just have to wait and see.”
