Travelers Championship - Final Round Early Start (Updated)

The ominous weather that has threatened the Travelers Championship all week never had a major impact. Until today.

The schedule for the final round was changed, due to the afternoon forecast. Tee times began at 7:30 a.m, with the guys starting on the 1st and 10th holes and playing in groups of three.

Well, it's noon right now in CT and the thunder is agressively rolling in the background. The sky is black and the first raindrops are falling. And the men at the top of the leaderboard are about half way through.

At this moment Stewart Cink in back on top, followed by defending champion Hunter Mahan. Tommy Amour, Heath Slocum and Vijay Singh round out the top five. That, of course, is subject to any given moment.

Chris DiMarco is up there in the top ten as well, which is good to see. I took this photo of him on Friday as he got ready to tee off on one.

Well, I just saw a lightning flash down here in Danbury, so I'm thinking a delay might be inevitable. I'll keep you posted.

Update: After a brief rain delay towards the end, Alabama boy, Stewart Cink, wins it...much to the satisfaction of some of my readers!
