What will the weather conditions be like?
Practice rounds early in the week were marked by a muddy, wet course thanks to plenty of rain. The precipitation is expected to taper off, though clouds will persist and keep temperatures in the mid-to-high 60s throughout the weekend.
The conditions could lead to Bethpage Black being more difficult than usual, with the thick, sticky grass having plenty of nourishment, but there’s little expectation that weather will cause much of a delay in play.
