Wet Weather Arrives at Augusta National

April 12, 2008

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Mother Nature's timing was impeccable. While overcast skies and spits of rain could be seen ever since the gates opened at 8 a.m. Saturday morning, it wasn't until after Miguel Angel Jimenez hit the opening tee shot of the third round that a steady drizzle started coming down.

Suffice it to say, players will have to cope with the elements during Saturday's play. In addition to intermittent showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms, winds have picked up, gusting 20 to 25 miles per hour.
