2022 PGA Championship weather: Day-by-day forecast for Southern Hills

TULSA, Okla. — It won’t be as hot at Southern Hills Country Club this week as it was in 2007.

Southern Hills hosts its fifth PGA this week, beginning Thursday. The last time the tournament was held in Tulsa, it was the hottest major championship on record. That year, it was contested in August.

That won’t be the case this time around.

Temperatures should be much cooler, especially during the weekend rounds because of a cold front expected to come through the area late Friday, according to weather.com. The wind direction is also forecasted to be different every day.

Thursday will be the hottest day of the week, with temperatures likely reaching 91 degrees with a south wind between 10 and 20 miles per hour.

Friday’s weather is similar, with highs reaching 89 and southwest winds blowing between 15 and 25 miles per hour. In the afternoon and evening, however, is when winds shift to out of the northeast and temperatures drop into the 60s.

Saturday, the high is only 63 degrees with winds 10 to 20 miles per hour out of the north and a slight chance of rain in the morning. Sunday’s final rounds looks spectacular, with a high of 72 and 10 to 15 miles per hour winds out of the east.

The change in winds will present a different challenge every day for the golfers, but overall, the weather is looking to be spectacular.
