The drama promised to be heightened Sunday at the Evian with the golf gods appearing to shine their favor on the storyline. By virtue of their performances Saturday, Lydia Ko and Morgan Pressel were set to be paired together in the final round, a dynamic matchup with history hanging in the balance.

It won’t happen, though, with a lot of rain in the forecast Saturday night and into Sunday, championship officials decided to revamp tee times and send players off early, in threesomes instead of twosomes, off the first and 10th tees.

The first groups are scheduled to go off at 2:23 a.m. ET with the leaders scheduled to go off at 4:35 ET.

Mi Hyang Lee (-10), Lexi Thompson (-9) and Lydia Ko (-8) are set to go off as the final grouping.

Pressel will go off with Amy Yang and Shanshan Feng in the second-to-last group off at 4:24 a.m. ET.
