The PGA Tour announced on Saturday that the final round of the first FedExCup Playoffs event will be postponed until Monday due to Hurricane Henri — which is rapidly approaching the New York City area.

“It looks like [the storm is] on a path 80 to 85 miles to our east,” PGA Tour tournament director John Mutch said, via Golfweek. “They are expecting landfall, it could be anywhere but what I’m hearing is somewhere around Long Island. We are on the good side of it. But it’s going to bring two to four inches of rain, wind, sustained winds, gusts to 35, maybe even up to 60 if we get on the wrong side of this.

“For public safety, for everyone’s safety, we felt it was the right thing to do.”

Henri was upgraded from a tropical storm to a Category 1 hurricane on Saturday afternoon. It’s expected to gain strength through Saturday night, and will likely make landfall in the northeast as a Category 1 storm on Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

A hurricane warning is in effect for significant parts of Long Island, parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts. A tropical storm warning is in place for New York City and coastal New Jersey, where Liberty National sits.

While moving play on Sunday makes sense, there is no guarantee that Monday’s weather will be that much better.

Rain and scattered thunderstorms are forecasted throughout the area on Monday, which could prove to be tough on the golf course after the hurricane moves through.

Mutch said that they will be taking down most of the course on Saturday, and then will rebuild it in time for Monday’s final round. Tee times will start no earlier than 7:30 a.m. ET. Groupings for the final round will be set on Sunday, and players will go off in threesomes on both tees to try and finish as fast as possible.

It’s unclear how the Tour will proceed if Monday’s round is altered due to weather, as the BMW Championship is supposed to start on Thursday.

“We’re not thinking about that right now,” Mutch said. “We fully expect to be able to play Monday. We really need seven hours … I think we’ll be here on Monday and I hope to get a winner on Monday.”

The world's top-ranked golfer leads the field at The Northern Trust by one headed into the weekend.

The final round of The Northern Trust has been pushed back to Monday because of approaching Hurricane Henri along the northeastern shores. The PGA Tour decided to shut down Liberty National on Sunday about an hour before the leaders began Saturday's third round, which was proceeding as scheduled. Henri became a hurricane late Saturday morning, and the New Jersey coast across from Manhattan was under a tropical storm warning and a flood watch.

Jon Rahm and Cameron Smith were tied for the lead Saturday in The Northern Trust, and neither could have imagined how they got there. Smith had never shot better than 62 — twice this year on the PGA Tour, once at his home club in Brisbane, Australia — when he stood over a 12-foot putt on the 18th hole at Liberty National for a chance at the 13th sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. “Jon is playing some pretty good at the minute, so we’ve got to try to catch up,” Smith said.

The Caldor Fire in the northern Sierra Nevada already destroyed dozens of homes, and authorities on Friday closed down a 46-mile (74-kilometer) stretch of Interstate 50, the main route between the state capital of Sacramento and Lake Tahoe on the Nevada state line.
