That's the ticket
After the weather-related cancellation of the first round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Friday, gates for spectators will open at 7 a.m. Saturday. Shuttles will still operate from the Honua Kai resort - the site of public parking for the event - starting at 6:45 a.m.
Tickets for Friday will be honored as grounds entrance for any day throughout the rest of the tournament, which is scheduled to end on Monday. Spectators can exchange their Friday tickets at the gate for a grounds ticket.

Quote of the day
"No, we pay 'em. We've got to go. Welcome to 2013. Right back into the swing of things. Most of the caddies, they are used to looping and I know they are coming off a little bit of a break, so it might be a little tougher (for) any of the guys just walking normally. And if we have any rain gear, umbrellas, bags are going to be heavy. There's going to be a lot of guys sleeping well tomorrow night if we make it 36."
