Wednesdays practice round at St. Andrews yesterday proved a struggle to those who braved the weather conditions on the course.
With gusts of winds coming in from the North Sea of up to 35 mph, temperatures in the 40s and rain falling sideways it was a battle against the elements for the golfers.
The weather for the rest of the Open though does not bode much better. Rain from mist to heavy showers, gusts of winds from 10-20mph and low temperatures are all predicted.
The weather at St Andrews can make such a difference to the scoring. Tiger who won the Open there in 2000 and 2005 said
“You get the Old Course on a calm day, you feel like you can shoot 65 every round. You get it on a windy day, the leader might be 80. It's just amazing what wind can do. You've really got to hit the ball well."
The weather proved so bad that the Champions Challenge to celebrate 150 years of the Open Golf Championship had to be cancelled. The challenge was to include 25 golfers who are past winners of the Open and would play against each other in teams over four holes of golf. The winning team would receive £50,000 for their chosen charities.
