  • Rain is falling at Oak Hills Country Club during Saturday's third round of the 2023 PGA Championship.
  • The updated PGA Championship weather report is wet for most of Saturday based on the latest forecast for Rochester, N.Y.
  • Below we examine the updated PGA Championship weather forecast for Saturday's third round.

PGA Championship weather has already had an impact on the first two rounds at Oak Hill Country Club.

A frost delay pushed back the start of the tournament on Thursday morning, meaning some players had to complete their first rounds early on Friday morning.

PGA Championship weather once again came to the forefront on Friday as rain fell throughout much of yesterday afternoon's second-round play.

And, spoiler alert, the PGA Championship weather forecast for Saturday is even uglier, so don't expect the rain to be leaving Rochester, New York, anytime soon.

Let's take a detailed look at what Mother Nature has in store for Saturday at Oak Hills Country Club.

PGA Championship Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, there's a 100% chance of rain in Rochester on Saturday.

The hourly breakdown provides more details as there's a 62% chance of precipitation at 7 a.m. ET, which then climbs to 100% by noon ET.

From there, the rain should begin to move out of the area, but that could still take a few hours to materialize.

Considering that there's already moisture around the course from Friday's rain, Oak Hills Country Club could be quite sloppy and waterlogged by the time Saturday's rain tapers off, especially if the latest PGA Championship weather forecast holds true.

The weather for Sunday and Monday do look much better with sunny, dry conditions, so it should be smooth sailing once we get through today's wet weather.

According to live PGA Championship odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, Scottie Scheffler (+160) is the tournament favorite heading into Saturday's third round, followed by Viktor Hovland (+400), Corey Conners (+700), Brooks Koepka (+1400) and Rory McIlroy (+2100).
