2022 The Players Championship weather forecast shows rain, high winds expected



The 2022 Players Championship weather forecast looks to include a rainy first few days of the championship, before giving way to a windy, challenging Saturday and Sunday at TPC Sawgrass. The move to March comes with cooler temperatures all week.

The general weather forecast calls for a high chance of rain during the first three championship days, with temperatures in the 70s through Saturday. On Sunday, temperatures will drop into the 50s but be the most difficult of the week from a wind perspective because of heavy gusts.

The wind will be consistently in the 10-12 mph range, with heavy winds on Saturday and gusting through the weekend.

The wind direction will be out of the north northeast on Sunday, meaning Nos. 17 and 18 will play into the wind, pushing balls left. However, the Saturday wind will push the ball right and downwind on both holes.

2022 The Players Championship updated weather forecast

  • Thursday, March 10: 72 degrees, thunderstorms likely, SW 14 mph winds
  • Friday, March 11: 70 degrees, showers and thunderstorms likely (1 inch of rain), ESE 9 mph winds
  • Saturday, March 12: 68 degrees, rain likely and temperatures falling through the day, WNW 22 mph winds
  • Sunday, March 13: 53 degrees, mostly sunny, NNE 14 mph winds
