It's going to be a brisk Masters, and we don't mean the pace of play.
The forecast issued by the Augusta National Golf Club today calls for a windy and wet start to the year's first major — and it will only marginally improve.
With Australia's Steve Bowditch off in the first group on Thursday night, he will likely confront showers for the first hour or two of his round before the day warms up to 22C with winds gusting to 30km/h in the afternoon.
Friday is slated to be only partly cloudy, but windy again and temperatures around 18C.
Saturday will bring a cold start and a top temperature around 17C, but a slight easing in the breeze to leave, hopefully, a calmer final round.
Sunday's temperature will rise to approximately 21C, with winds tipped to be no stronger than 15km/h.
