2018 Masters Weather Forecast

The US Masters is generally renowned for being a tournament played under clear blue skies in the sun-drenched state of Georgia.

If the conditions are firm and fast, the majority of the players in the field will be able to hit at least three of Augusta National‘s par 5s in two.

If conditions are wet underfoot, however, it could give some of the shorter hitters an advantage by levelling the playing field. If there’s wind, then Amen Corner will be even more daunting than usual.
