The potential for inclement weather has not only impacted Sunday's final-round tee times at the Masters but will affect a long-standing tradition at Augusta National as well.

Tournament officials announced early Sunday there will be no green jacket ceremony on the 18th green, citing concerns over an incoming storm, according to Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard.

Leaders are expected to finish around 2:30 p.m. ET with the brunt of the storm arriving at Augusta approximately 30 minutes later.

The same weather system forced tee times to be moved up Sunday morning, with the first groups teeing off at 7:30 a.m. ET.

With the cancellation, the green jacket will only be awarded at the traditional ceremony inside the famed Butler Cabin.
