Officials optimistic about forecast

BY foxsports • May 14, 2011

Sunday's forecast calls for isolated thunderstorms in the morning, with a slight chance of rain the rest of the day. So PGA Tour officials expect to get the third and final rounds finished without any problems.

The third round will resume at 7:45 a.m., with officials expecting to need about three hours to complete play. Golfers will be back on the Stadium Course at 11:30 a.m., teeing off the final round in threesomes from the front and back nines. The leaders are expected to tee off around 1:42 p.m., with plenty of daylight remaining to play 18 holes.

''We're going to have some beautiful weather tomorrow,'' said Mark Russell, vice president of rules and competition. ''Low to mid 80s and less humidity, so it should be a great final day.''
