JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — The PGA Tour made an early call to push back the final round of The Northern Trust until Monday.

That was a smart move even with Hurricane Henri moving north and east.

It made landfall Sunday in Rhode Island as a tropical storm.

Liberty National received 5 inches of rain but no wind damage.

The hope now is to be able to start — and finish — the final round on Monday.

Jon Rahm and Cameron Smith are tied for the lead.

It’s the first day off at a tournament since the Zozo Championship in Japan in 2019.
