Late-night golf (for those on the East Coast) is back for one more week.

The Sony Open concludes the PGA Tour's Hawaii swing, and last year's champ and player of the year Justin Thomas is back to defend his title. Thomas opened with a 59 last year — becoming the youngest on Tour to ever reach the number — and cruised to a seven-shot victory to sweep the Tour's Hawaiian events. Thomas will also use a high-profile fill-in caddie this week in Jim "Bones" Mackay. His regular caddie, Jimmy Johnson, is out with plantar fasciitis. Thomas's dad, Mike, caddied for him last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Thomas is grouped with Jason Dufner and Kevin Kisner and tees off at 5:40 p.m. (ET) for his opening round on Thursday. Jordan Spieth is also in the field, and he'll tee off alongside Xander Schauffele and Daniel Berger at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Complete starting times for the first two rounds are below.
