A brief shower moved through Thursday evening but for the most part, greens were dry. As AccuWeather.com Staff Writer Kevin Byrne reported, the course drains very well, keeping the greens firm.

Many dads will be tuning into coverage of the final round on Father's Day Sunday, but many others could be out and about, playing golf themselves. Check here for the national outdoor forecast this Father's Day.
