Gray, soggy start to Round 3 of British Open

RSS

HOYLAKE, England – The third round of the Open Championship is off to a predictably gray and soggy start, with tee times pushed up more than four hours in an attempt to complete 54 holes by Sunday. 

The forecast calls for a “significant risk of thundery activity” through at least 2 p.m. local time (9 a.m. ET), with conditions improving in the mid-to-late afternoon at Royal Liverpool. Winds are expected to remain steady at 5-8 mph, with occasional gusts up to 25 mph and the possibility of 35-mph winds in the thunderstorms.

There also is a chance of thunderstorms around 8 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET).
