Golfers in Honolulu for the 2018 Sony Open reflected on the scare they received Saturday morning when an emergency alert was pushed to phones throughout the state saying there was a "ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii." 

The alert, which was ultimately ruled a false alarm by the Hawaii Emergency Agency, urged people to "seek immediate shelter." 

"All the alarms went off at the same time," Charles Howell III told the Associated Press’ Doug Ferguson. "It got everyone’s attention. I didn’t know what to do. We all stared at each other. It kind of shows you the world we live in now. Your whole life can change in a second."
