Pat Shingleton: "How's This for Openers?"

10 months ago July 16, 2014 Jul 16, 2014 Wednesday, July 16 2014 Wednesday, July 16, 2014 5:22:46 PM EDT in Pat Shingleton Column

The British Open begins today and the four day weather expectations include partly sunny skies and light winds. Heavy showers will erupt on Saturday with windy conditions and temperatures dipping to 60 degrees by Sunday. Beginning in 1860, this is the oldest of the four major tournaments. Weather has always been an important element in the play of golf professionals. Drought-like conditions resulted in super fast greens and even faster fairways. At the Royal Liverpool Golf Club the tricky maritime weather will be evident from start to finish. The links courses have no trees, a few walls, plenty of deep pot-bunkers and thick fescue grass. Veterans like Phil Mickelson remember previous weather experiences to adjust their play for the Claret.
