Weather forecast for Sunday at the British Open calls for gusty winds
The weather might turn more British Open-y at Lytham & St. Annes for the final round with winds expected to increase.
Let's face it, the weather through the first three rounds of the 2012 British Open hasn't exactly made you feel like wrapping yourself in argyle and eating haggis by the pound. We've seen more bicep than umbrella through 54 holes, but the weather might actually change, according to the meteorologists that have yet to get a day right.
Yes, winds are expected to blow, with gusts reaching up to 25 miles per hour, a welcome sight to anyone on down the leaderboard hoping to pull a Ben Curtis at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.
What does windy conditions mean for the leaders? Simply, it won't be as easy as they thought. When the weather is perfect, it helps the guys atop the leaderboard because few people are able to go out and post ridiculously low numbers at major championships on a Sunday. When the winds pick up, the leaders could stumble and a 67 or 68 from a guy well down the leaderboard could vault him ahead of a ton of guys who can't handle the conditions.
So, yes, the winds are supposedly coming. Stay tuned.
