AUBURN, Ala. - A morning of steady rain Friday forced the cancellation of The Derby Invitational's first round. The tournament will begin Saturday and consist of only two rounds, both beginning with shotgun starts.

The 17-team field will tee off at 11 a.m. CT Saturday, and Sunday's final round is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. CT.

This is the fifth time in The Derby's history that a round has been cancelled to inclement weather. Rounds were rained out in 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1998.
