2023 RBC Canadian Open Weather Forecast and Projections

We’re teeing off for the RBC Canadian Open this week, and the biggest concern weather wise is wildfire smoke. I don’t expect the smoke changes anything for golfers, but it could be a storyline throughout the tournament.

As usual in my Golf weather forecasts, we’re focusing more on wind than rain. While rain can halt play if it’s heavy enough, it also helps to soften and slow the course, meaning it helps as much as it hurts. With wind there’s no helpful side, it’s all negative impact, and the impact can lead to dramatic differences in scoring. My goal is always to try and highlight the timeframe with the lightest winds, the time with the strongest winds, and to see if there’s a cumulative advantage for one wave over another. You can use then use this to your advantage making your picks on DFS sites and sportsbooks.

Canadian Open Weather Forecast

As I mentioned in the intro, when it comes to finding a usable and predictable edge for PGA, wind matters a lot more than rain. But in the case of the Canadian Open, there’s no real wind to navigate around. I think the lack of any notable winds means that there’s no clear weather advantage to be had for this tournament. Stay tuned to @KevinRothWx for the latest.
