The final round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship will begin at 8:30 a.m. local time (3:30 a.m. ET) Sunday in Scotland via a shotgun start.

With winds expected to gust at 40 mph on the Old Course at St. Andrews, tournament officials are hoping a shotgun start will allow the tournament to finish on schedule.

Per the European Tour, this will be just the fourth shotgun start in the circuit's history, following the final round of the 1994 Czech Open and the third and final rounds of the 2015 Portugal Masters.
