After soggy conditions for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship, spectators and players finally had fantastic weather for Saturday's third round.

Afternoon temperatures were in the low 70s with sunshine and low humidity. The players, however, had to contend with winds that occasionally gusted to near 20 m.p.h.

This year, the PGA Championship is being held at the Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.

High pressure over the area Sunday will continue to promote plenty of sunshine and low humidity.

Temperatures Sunday afternoon will climb into the middle 70s and the wind will not be as much of a factor for the players, as they will generally be under 10 m.p.h.

There was an hour delay in the first round on Thursday afternoon due to heavy thunderstorms moving through the area.

Rain persisted through the morning hours Friday, but it dried out in the afternoon with some peeks of sun late in the day.
