Weather could be an issue later

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Playing early on a Saturday means that you haven't exactly been at the top of your game during the first two rounds.

Today at the Memorial Tournament, though, it may be a blessing in disguise. That's because the weather conditions are expected to worsen as the day progresses.

A cold front will move into the area in the afternoon with scattered thunderstorms developing -- possibly with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain. Already the winds have kicked up, storms are forming to the south and a gray haze has settled over Muirfield Village.

Winds in the morning were in the 5-10 mph range. By 3 p.m., though, the wind will be gusting to 20 mph which will make an already challenging layout even more so.

Mark Leishman is among those taking advantage of his early tee time. He just made the turn in 5 under and is four strokes off the lead. Ditto for Ben Curtis, who made the cut on the number and is 4 under through 16 holes.
