Final round of Memorial Tournament suspended due to dangerous weather

We break down the weather forecast for this week’s Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Thursday could have thunderstorms.

UPDATE 4:23 p.m.: Players will be in position to restart at 4:30 p.m., per PGA Tour Comms.

Final round update, 3:41 p.m.: The final round of the Memorial Tournament has been suspended due to a “dangerous weather situation.” There is no word yet on when it will restart. Jon Rahm (-12) has a four stroke lead after completing the fourth hole. Ryan Palmer sits in second place at -8. The biggest mover on Sunday has been Patrick Reed, who has gone five under through 14. He’s -4 for the tournament as of the suspension.

The PGA Tour is back for its second straight weekend at Muirfield Golf Club, and they’re hoping for a little bit better luck with the weather forecast. Last week, Friday’s second round at the Workday Charity Open was delayed twice due to rain and it resulted in the end of the round being suspended due to darkness.

This week at the Memorial Tournament, the forecast is looking fairly good for Friday through Sunday, but Thursday has a decent chance of some afternoon rain. The National Weather Service says that showers and thunderstorms are likely, primarily after 1 p.m. There will also be wind from the south at 6-14 mph, gusts of up to 26 mph. The chance of rain is 60 percent, with new rainfall amounts of between a tenth and quarter of an inch and higher amounts possible during any thunderstorms.

There’s a chance of showers and thunderstorms before 4 p.m. on Friday and after 11 a.m. on Saturday, but the chance of precipitation for both days is 30 percent. Sunday has a 40 percent chance of precipitation, but is supposed to be mostly sunny.
