  • Saturday looks like it will be the "pearl" of the week in terms of weather at Royal Portrush, as hardly any rain is expected.
  • Winds will be worse for the morning groups and die down as the day progresses.

Round 2 of The Open was fairly similar to Round 1 when it came to weather conditions, with a mixture of spotty showers and wind throughout the day. The players aren’t having to rough of a go, though, as both J.B. Holmes and Shane Lowry are -8 halfway through the tourney.


Round 3 looks like it will be the driest day of the tournament, and potentially rain-free depending on whether or not any isolated showers hit Royal Portrush.

There’s only a 20% chance of showers before noon and 10-15% chance in the afternoon hours. Partly sunny skies and 65 degree temperatures are even expected in the afternoon, which from what I’ve gathered is about as nice as it gets there.

As for winds, the morning golfers appear to have a disadvantage compared to those teeing off in the afternoon. Sources vary in terms of the actual mph figure, but agree that mid-morning winds will be 3-5 mph higher than mid-afternoon into the evening. Gusts will drop in a similar fashion.
