Saturday Sony tee times, TV schedule moved up


HONOLULU – Because of a forecast calling for late-afternoon storms, tee times for Saturday’s third round of the Sony Open have been moved up.

The round will begin at approximately 1 p.m. ET and the last tee time will be approximately 3 p.m. ET. That means the final group should finish by around 8 p.m. ET, hopefully before the storms begin.

As in the first two rounds, competitors will be grouped in threesomes off both the first and 10th tees.

UPDATE: Golf Channel has also moved up its live coverage of the third round to 4-8:30 p.m. ET.
