Weather For Augusta Looks Nearly Perfect

If there's one thing that can change a golf tournament on its ear quickly, its the weather. For example, if there's a lot of wind, a player like Paddy Harrington has a built-in advantage, because he can control his ball better in a gale than most anyone, even Tiger Woods. Rain can also affect the speed and softness of not only the greens, but also the fairways. And so forth and so on.

From the early looks of it, there doesn't appear to be a major threat of weather changing the course of the PGA season's first major, and aide from a stray thunderstorm passing through on Friday, the weather looks to be picture-perfect in Augusta for the Masters. Winds are forecast to be light Thursday and Friday, ranging between 3-10 MPH on Thursday.
