PGA Weather: The Players Championship. Hey guys and gals, you're likely noticing right about now that we now have a brand new dedicated page for PGA weather! This means you don't have to search through the forums for each individual post, but instead can bookmark this link for the latest PGA weather forecasts. The formatting is going to be a bit different, and it's something I might play around with a bit moving forward, but I think using the color-coding system might help people who want to just take a quick peek for important info. With all that said... let's break down the Player's Championship Weather in lovely Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (hint - it's nice).
Thursday AM - Perfect golf weather, dry with winds starting close to dead calm and climbing to just 5mph by late AM.
Thursday PM - Winds will gradually increase in the afternoon (a typical coastal FL pattern). In the early afternoon winds will be 5-10mph, climbing to 10-15mph sustained by the late afternoon and early evening. Good, but not perfect.
Friday AM - A repeat of Thursday, calm winds to start, 5mph winds by the late morning.
Friday PM - Winds again will gradually increase through the afternoon, peaking in the late afternoon around 10-15mph sustained.
Saturday & Sunday - Winds actually flatten out a bit over the weekend, so while we still have the pattern of increasing afternoon winds, the peak winds will only reach 5-10mph, not nearly high enough to be a concern.
Overall - With both Thursday and Friday having the same "better in the morning, but still ok in the afternoon" pattern, I don't see any weather edge to be had for this tournament. Trust in the awesome work of our PGA pro's and enjoy!
