Multiple bands of wet weather could impact the final round of the 3M Open in Blaine, Minnesota, today, as PGA Tour organizers have crammed tee times into a late morning/early afternoon window.
Originally, groups were scheduled to go off in pairs, starting at 8:20 a.m. ET, and finishing with the leaders — Michael Thompson, Richy Werenski — at 1:55 p.m. ET.
Now, the groups will be lumped into threes and will go off both tees starting around 11 a.m. ET, with the final group heading out at 1 p.m. Scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast for the area, but only at about a 50 percent clip.
What does that mean for you, the TV viewer? If the weather holds out, and that’s a huge concern, play should wrap up a little earlier, and the early morning dose of PGA Tour Live (from 8 to 11 a.m. ET) will be canceled. Click below for updated tee times.

Werenski, 28, is bidding for his maiden PGA Tour title while Thompson, 35, won his lone title seven years ago at the Honda Classic. Tony Finau (69) and former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel (66) are the closest pursuers, two strokes behind.
