    A big welcome back to DFS golf and all DFS golf grinders! Excited to be doing golf forecasts again, a relatively low stress and potentially high reward forecast. Weather won’t always make or break the scores, but there will be times throughout the season when catching this weather report is the difference between easy money and “dead after day two”. This week is the Tour of Champions, in lovely (I assume) Kapalua, Hawaii… not exactly a likely place for a strong cold front to turn the forecast upside down with winds and rain, so it’s fairly straight forward…

    THURS – Windy, a little wet
    AM – Winds will start out around 10mph sustained, climbing quickly (before noon) to near-max speed at around 15mph sustained. Scattered showers possible.
    PM – Holding fairly steady at 15mph sustained, with some stronger gusts mixed in. Scattered showers possible.

    FRI – Still windy, a little less wet
    AM – Winds still begin around 10mph, and still make the quick climb to near 15mph fairly early. Isolated showers possible, but not likely.
    PM – Winds climbing fairly close to 15mph sustained again, maybe a hair less, but again some stronger gusts will exceed 15mph. Isolated showers possible, but unlikely.

    SAT & SUN – Essentially more of the same. The weekend will actually be a bit breezier than Thurs and Fri, with sustained winds 15+, and gusts pushing around 20mph. Rain chances will remain possible, but low.

    OVERALL – Not one of those setups where there’s a clear-cut winner between the early and late slate golfers, both mornings (Thurs and Fri) are slightly preferred to the afternoon, but no one is particularly better than the other. The real key here is knowing that wind will be at least a minor factor all tourney long, so if you can hone in on a few guys who have proven they can handle a decently windy day, you will be better off.

    Happy Grinding,

    I was just in Maui last week and the winds were stronger in the afternoon and it was very calm in the morning. Heat ranged from 19 to 30 degrees C. Basically I’m just confirming what Kevin said with first hand experience.

    Thanks for the great work you do day in and day out
