Kevin Kisner will get to the Georgia vs. Mississippi State game tonight on time thanks to a little help from his PGA Tour friends--and his Twitter account. On Friday Kisner tweeted that he needed a helicopter to take him to Athens to get to the game at 7 pm; his tee time is at 1:45 p.m. this afternoon. 

Luckily for Kisner, the Golf Channel reports that Justin Thomas came to his rescue, setting him up with a local company called Helicopter Express. Kisner's ride will pick him up at the Charlie Yates Golf Course, near East Lake.

Kisner enters Sunday two off the lead at the Tour Championship, chasing Paul Casey.
