Storms are expected to arrive in Augusta, Georgia roughly a half hour after the final groups finish up at the Masters on Sunday. Though all golfers should be able to get in their final round of the tournament before the storms arrive, one of the biggest traditions in sports will not happen.

According to Rex Hoggard of the Golf Channel, Masters officials have announced they are canceling the Green Jacket Ceremony which traditionally takes place after the final round.

Tournament officials announced early Sunday that there will be no Green Jacket Ceremony. The champion will still participate in the green jacket presentation in Butler Cabin, but the traditional ceremony on the terrace putting green was cancelled “in order to expedite gate closures.”

The leaders should complete their rounds around 2:30 p.m. ET and the forecast calls for a 95-percent chance of thunderstorms at 3 p.m.
