Our guy Kevin Roth has a weather preview for Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland up on RotoGrinders. Roth has Thursday projected to be windy and rainy, worst day of the tournament. The reality is the entire field of golfers has to deal with the same conditions (unless you can time your selections for tee times that are in the best weather spots, good luck with that). Guys who are good at keeping balls in the fairway are going to be critical potentially, because this wind will probably challenge the field.
The Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush Golf Club runs 7,344 yards and will play as a Par 71 for the 148th British Open Championship. A links course emphasizes natural terrain, as the style dates back to the invention of the game of golf, and a time where course designers and landscapers didn’t have much opportunity to shape the course themselves.
This course length could translate into a good weekend for golfers who have a strength at hitting it far off the tee, and keeping the golf ball out of rough cut grass.
PGA has a lot of data available for you to consider. This week, the following stats are important. This changes week to week based on course characteristics in PGA DFS.
