JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — 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 tomorrow about an hour before the leaders began the third round.
Today’s third round is proceeding as scheduled. Henri became a hurricane late this morning, and the New Jersey coast across from Manhattan is under a tropical storm warning and a flood watch.
Based on the projected path of Tropical Storm Henri and the Tropical Storm Warning that has been issued by the National Hurricane Center for the area where THE NORTHERN TRUST is located, there will be no play on Sunday, August 22nd.

It will be the second time in 10 years the tournament was disrupted by a hurricane.
It also happened in 2011 at Plainfield when the event was shortened to 54 holes.
