PGA Championship 2024: Rain, storms in forecast for Valhalla

LOUISVILLE — We are in horse racing country, so to borrow from the parlance of the equestrian sport, you might want to back a "mudder" this week.

Most of the 2024 PGA Championship field was out early on Tuesday at Valhalla, trying to get prep work in before ominous weather rolled through the year. That hope was short lived, as yellow “Weather Warning” signs were posted around 9:30 a.m with storms moving into the Louisville area.

If the forecasts are to be believed, those signs may be making multiple appearances at the 2024 PGA Championship.

Valhalla is supposed to be hit with rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, and though Thursday’s opening round should provide a respite, storms are expected to return on Friday and Saturday.

Luckily Sunday’s forecast looks better, and the PGA battled through a rain-soaked slogfest at Oak Hill last spring. Still, don’t be surprised if rain is one of this tournament’s primary characters to start the week.
