All golfers finished Friday’s second round at the U.S. Open and there were no weather delays. Based on early forecasts, that should be the case on Saturday in the third round as well.
Louis Oosthuizen started the day finishing off his 4-under opening round before beginning his second round right after. He finished even par to position himself one back of co-leaders Russell Henley and Richard Bland.
Seventy-one players made the cut at 4 over and better. Those who did will be checking the weather, as will bettors looking to gain insight into the conditions.

U.S. Open Third Round Weather Report
Just like Friday, patchy fog is expected to fill the sky until 11 a.m. local time. However, that fog wasn’t enough to cause any delays like Thursday. The fog can be hard to predict, but with less than half the field remaining, a delay wouldn’t be worst-case scenario.
Temperatures will range from 69 to 72 degrees throughout the day, which isn’t an impactful amount either way. There’s a zero percent chance of rain throughout the day.
The biggest factor on the weekend is often wind.
It will certainly pick up later in the afternoon, with morning players seeing just 3 mph of surface wind. That will reach 8 mph in the afternoon. It should hardly be noticeable during the morning, while the afternoon amount shouldn’t be significant.
It looks like the toughest challenge will once again just be the course itself, which has kept scores low all week.
