Nothing about the Masters is easy, even if it seemed that way for much of the field during Thursday's opening round. On Friday, players were met by downpours that dumped an inch of water on the course overnight. The rain should continue sporadically through the late morning, but the skies should clear by mid-afternoon with highs in the low 80s.

The upside to the wet conditions: the golf course becomes effectively bigger, and the greens hold more approach shots. And, ultimately, that means lower scores.

As for the rest of the weekend, Saturday should be mostly sunny with a high of 77, but the forecast calls for an afternoon thunderstorm on Sunday with highs in the low 80s.
