In anticipation of storms rolling into Honolulu, Hawaii, Sunday afternoon, tee times for the final round of the Sony Open have been pushed up by two hours.
The forecast for Honolulu predicts heavy rain showers late in the afternoon and a poor forecast on Monday so the PGA Tour announced Saturday evening tee times will begin at 8:30 a.m. local time (1:30 p.m. ET) in hopes of crowning a winner before inclement weather hits.

On Saturday in Honolulu, the temperature was in the high 70s and low 80s as the third round began. As of the end of the second round, 45 players were within six shot of the lead.
Due to anticipated heavy rain showers late Sunday afternoon (combined with a poor weather forecast on Monday), final-round tee times at the @SonyOpenHawaii will be moved up two hours and run from approximately 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. local time. The expected finish time will be 3 p.m.
