Update 4:45 p.m. Play will restart at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, with a final round scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. ET. Players will use both Tee No. 1 and Tee No. 10 as starting holes as Augusta National hopes to complete play before darkness sets in on Sunday afternoon.
Update 3:38 p.m. The third round has now been suspended for the rest of Saturday, and play is scheduled to resume on Sunday morning. Once we know when the tee times are scheduled for morning play, we’ll add that here.
The leaders in Brooks Koepka (-13), Jon Rahm (-9), and Sam Bennett (-6) are on the seventh hole, and they’ll need to finish their round before the final round can commence later on Sunday.
Update 11:20 a.m. We have a full list of Saturday Round 3 tee times here, as golfers will be going off both No. 1 and No. 10 in threesomes in an effort to complete play today.
Update 11:05 a.m. We still don’t have groups, tee times, or anything else from the fine folks at Augusta National. Hopefully we find out if it’s threesomes or twosomes, split tees or everyone from No. 1, as soon as possible. Otherwise there’s little chance we’ll get the full third round in on Saturday.
Update 10:05 a.m. We said a 10 a.m. restart would be ambitious, and that turned out to be true as there are still players yet to tee off on No. 17 as we write this. Let’s figure around 11:00 a.m. at earliest as to when the third round will actually begin.
Weather is taking its toll on the 2023 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. The second round was suspended around 6 p.m. ET on Friday and will resume play at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday. The third round of the tournament was initially scheduled to start at 10 a.m. ET.
While that timeline seems quite ambitious with some players still not having played the ninth hole, we’ll see how they can make it work at Augusta National. There are still 39 players left on the course of the 87 still in the tournament.
The cut line is currently at +2, with 51 players on that number or better. Brooks Koepka is the tournament leader at -12 having finished his second round already, and Tiger Woods is right on the bubble himself, with a score of +2 with seven holes remaining.
