After almost 3 weeks at home I am now back in Scotland at the Archerfield Links (Fidra Course) which is close by Murfield Golf Club.
Archerfield Links Fidra Course hosted the Paul Lawrie Match Play on the European Tour a couple of weeks ago and is in pretty good condition although the greens are transitioning from bent to poa and some are only part way through the transition.
The weather is predicted to be rough with gale force winds Saturday and rain from Friday afternoon throughout the weekend.
Weather Forecast During Playing Time:
Friday Low 10C High 15C Partly Cloudy Sky to begin day then clouding over POP 80% Wind 25 – 45km/h ESE
Saturday Low 10C High 15C Overcast Sky POP 80% Thunderstorms in the afternoon Wind 25 – 45km/h SE with gust up to 80km/h
Sunday Low 10C High 17C Overcast Sky POP 50% Showers in the morning Wind 25 – 40km/h W
This tournament starts a full 4 week run of tournament and it will be nice to get on a good roll over this period.
