No 2002 repeat: Rain not a factor in third round

RSS

GULLANE, Scotland – Well, this much is certain: There won’t be a repeat of 2002.

The forecast for Saturday’s third round of the British Open calls for a sunny afternoon with wind gusts up to 15 mph and a high temperature around 70 degrees.

That’s a far cry from 11 years ago, of course, when an unexpected storm rolled into Muirfield and brought wind chills into the 30s with a stinging, sideways rain. Umbrellas were rendered useless in the wind. 

On Saturday, the weather forecast for Muirfield is so good, it simply reads: “Bright with sunny spells.”

The outlook for Sunday also looks promising: a bright, dry afternoon with sun, a high temperature around 70 degrees, and wind gusts up to 15 mph.
