Welcome back to PGA DFS everyone! While parts of the country are in the deep freeze, the champions of the PGA Tour in 2017 are in sunny Hawaii at the Plantation Course in Kapalua. As always this time of year on the islands, wind will be a big factor during play. But we could also see rain wreak some havoc this weekend. Let’s dive into the forecast for this small, yet stacked first event of 2018!
|Thursday||We start the tournament off with a few isolated showers around the course before lunch time. These should be quick movers and won’t impact play that much. Winds will be the big story for round one, and the rest of the weekend. Winds will blow 15-20 mph for most of the day, but gusts at 30 mph at times during the afternoon could lead to some difficult club selections or 400 yard drives!|
|Friday||We’ll have the same rain forecast for Friday that we did on Thursday; isolated showers before noon moving quickly across the course. Winds will also be similar to Thursday, with winds in the morning and afternoon in the 15-20 mph range with higher gusts at 25 mph at times. No one will have a particular advantage during the first two days of the tournament.
|Both weekend days will be carbon copies of each other. Rain chances will be a little higher on both days, with around a 40-50% chance of showers during play. These will be your typical quick-hitting showers, but there will be a few more of them during the afternoon. Winds won’t die down either. Expect winds of 20 mph with gusts to 25-30 mph at times. Once again, everyone will play in these conditions, which could lead to trouble or big bombs off the tee. Enjoy it everyone!!|
