Final round open to fans on Sunday

BETHESDA, Md. -- Fans will be allowed back on the grounds at Congressional for Sunday’s final round of the AT&T National, one day after a storm devastated the course and forced tournament officials to close the course to fans due to safety concerns.

Gates will open at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday, with the first tee time at 11 a.m. Players will go off both the first and 10th tees in threesomes. The final threesome of the day – Tiger Woods, Bo Van Pelt and tournament leader Brendon de Jonge – will tee off at 1:15 p.m.  Click here for tee times

All fans who held tickets for Saturday’s third round can use those tickets to attend Sunday’s final round.

As for parking, tournament officials said the general parking lot is the Rock Spring lot located off Fernwood Round and Rockledge Drive.  Click here for more spectator information.

AT&T National officials tweeted Sunday morning that fans will be allowed back on the Congressional grounds Sunday for the final round, one day after a storm devastated the course and caused safety concerns.

If you’re staying home, Golf Channel will have early coverage starting at 1 p.m., with CBS picking up the broadcast at 3 p.m. You can also listen to tournament coverage on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (Sirius 208, XM 93).

De Jonge, the Zimbabwe native who played college golf at Virginia Tech, takes a one-shot lead into Sunday as he seeks his first PGA TOUR win.

“It would be huge,” de Jonge said about what it would mean to win on Sunday. “Winning here would be that much more special, as well, obviously being a huge Virginia Tech contingent around here would be wonderful, and it's obviously a great tournament with a great field, so that would be a good feather in your cap. But obviously I've got a lot of work to do tomorrow.”
