Sunday is not there as a buffer because tournaments are NOT allowed to finish incomplete rounds by adding another day.

Under no circumstances should players be expected, or asked, to return on a day
following the last day of the regular scheduled rounds to finish the event.
This last statement is also part of PDGA Mid-Event Weather Suspension & Cancellation Guidelines
