PGA Tour golfers in Honolulu for the Sony Open had the same terrified reaction that everyone else on the islands had after reading a message about a ballistic missile threat on Saturday morning. An alert that told everyone in Hawaii to take shelter was sent out, but it wound up being a false alarm.

Justin Thomas said that he's "glad to know we'll all be safe," and many others were extremely annoyed once they realized the threat wasn't real.

Other pro athletes who had loved ones in Hawaii were also scared by the false alarm. The Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns said that "the panic was real" for his girlfriend's family. He added, "We should thank god for every day no matter the struggles and tell our family we love them."
