The cold that hit the Masters… from 30 degrees to 8 degrees ‘pop’

On the third day of the major tournament, the Masters Tournament, as feared, the cold hit.

On the 8th (local time), at the Augusta National Golf Club (par 72) in Augusta, Georgia, the temperature dropped and the cold came, and rain fell and wet the course.

In the weather forecast announced prior to the opening of this event, bad weather was predicted from the afternoon of the second day. In particular, thunderstorms accompanied by rain and a cold temperature of up to 8 degrees Celsius are expected, so players are paying attention to their physical condition.

The weather was good for the first day and the second morning of the competition. During the first round, the maximum temperature rose to over 30 degrees, and many players sweated in the heat. However, it rained from around 3:00 pm on the second day of the tournament, and lightning warnings and strong winds blew in, preventing the second round from finishing. 86 players participated, and 39 players will play the delayed game first from 8:00 a.m. on the third day (9:00 p.m. on the 8th, Korean time).

The Masters, which is held every year in the first week of April, is not uncommon due to bad weather. Out of the 86 tournaments held until last year, 47 had rain for more than a day, and 25 had an impact on the game. There were five times when the winner came out on Monday because the game was postponed due to bad weather.

During the last four years, the game was stopped due to bad weather more than once, and in 2020, when it became difficult to proceed normally, the tee-off method for hole 1 was changed and the game was played with simultaneous tee-off of holes 1 and 10. 메이저사이트

I am interested in how the cold and rain will affect the game. When the fairway is wet, the ball rolls less and the green turns softer and the speed drops. It is the players’ homework to quickly adapt to the changes that have changed that much.

Until the second round stoppage, Brooks Koepka (USA) took the lead with 12 under par 132 strokes, and John Rahm (Spain) is chasing with 9 under par.

As for Korean players, Lee Gyeong-hoon finished the game with 3 under par 141 strokes, Kim Joo-hyung 2 under par 142 strokes, Kim Si-woo 1 over par 145 strokes, and Lim Seong-jae recorded 1 under par up to the 8th hole. The expected cutoff is 2 over par.
