With the second men’s major of the year getting underway soon, the best players in the world will be anxiously checking the weather forecast.


For those who make the cut, another breezy day awaits, with winds gusting to around 25mph. One thing to look out for here, however, is thunderstorms. Although it’s just a slight chance, any threat may see play suspended until it’s safe to continue.


The final day currently looks like the best of the week. There’s only due to be a light breeze, and it’s set to be significantly cooler. You might just see the leaders take advantage of calmer conditions in the afternoon and shoot a low one.

Who does it favour?

At the moment, it looks like players who have an early tee time on Thursday and a late one on Friday, will get the best of the weather.

Of course, that can quickly change, but those who are heading out early on day one might just have a chance to shoot a low number before the wind gets up in the afternoon. Take this into account when you’re picking your winner.
