Met Office British Open Weather Forecast looks brighter for today at Royal St George's Links, Sandwich
The late starters today and early starters tomorrow are scheduled to get the best of the draw, which can often be the way in links golf.
It was very breezy early on and the rain threatened to come on today but this never came to anything much.
We have been working very closely with The Met Office the past two seasons to bring you accurate weather forecasts for main golf events such as The British Open and BMW Golf Championship.
This Weather Widget is provided by the Met Office
The Met Office have kindly provided us with the above widget that provides an easy to glance summary as to what weather is due over the next four days.
The weather was not very good for the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart Golf Links, it played havoc at the US Women's Open at The Broadmoor and the recent OneAsia Golf Tour event had to be cancelled.
The Moray Firth area where the Scottish Open was held is one of the mildest and dry locations in the UK and this appears to have been a global spell of bad weather covering Asia, America and the UK. So here's hoping we get better playing conditions for The Open at Royal St George's Links, Sandwich, Kent, England.
Thursday - Cloudy 17 Degrees 18 mph winds South
Friday - Sunnny & Cloudy 22 Degrees 7 mph winds NNE
Saturday - Sunny, Cloudy & Showers 17 Degrees 21 mph winds NE

The Open Golf Championship 2nd Round Wrap
Amateur Tom Lewis, a 20-year-old native of Welwyn Garden City, England, opened his first British Open with a 5-under 65 – the lowest round by an amateur in Open history – to share the 18-hole lead with Thomas Bjorn.
Prior to Thursday, the lowest round by an amateur at the British Open was 66, recorded by Frank Stranahan in 1950 (R4), Tiger Woods in 1996 (R2) and Justin Rose in 1998 (R2).
The last amateur to lead the British Open after any round was Michael Bonallack, who shared the opening-round lead with Brian Barnes after matching 70s at the 1968 British Open at Carnoustie.
Mike Reid was the last amateur to lead a Major Championship, doing so by three strokes after the first round of the 1976 U.S. Open.
Three amateurs have won the British Open a total of six times:
Bobby Jones 3 1926, 1927, 1930
Harold Hilton 2 1892, 1897
John Ball Jr. 1 1890
Here’s a look at the youngest winners at the British Open:
Tommy Morris Jr. 1868 17 years, 5 months, 3 days
Willie Auchterlonie 2893 21 years, 24 days
Seve Ballesteros 1979 22 years, 3 months, 12 days
Lewis won the 2009 Boys’ Amateur Championship at Royal St. George’s.
Lewis was named after five-time British Open winner Tom Watson. The two were grouped together on Thursday, with Watson carding a 2-over 72. Henrik Stenson rounded out the group with a 2-over 72.
Thomas Bjorn, who earned his spot in the field when Vijay Singh withdrew earlier this week, opened on Thursday with a 5-under 65. It was his first round in the 60s at the event since a third-round 69 at Royal St. George’s in 2003.
Thursday marked just the eighth time Bjorn has posted a sub-70 score in 41 rounds at the British Open. His previous low was 68, set on three occasions and most recently during the opening round in 2002 (finished T8).
Bjorn returns to Royal St. George’s seeking redemption from the 2003 British Open, where he entered the 16th hole with a two-shot lead before finishing double bogey-bogey-par to finish one stroke behind champion Ben Curtis. On Thursday, Bjorn birdied the par-3 16th hole.
Bjorn won earlier this year at the Qatar Masters – one of 11 career victories on the European Tour.
Bjorn is making his 14th start at the British Open, with runner-up finishes in 2000 and 2003 among his four top-10 finishes. In all, he owns seven made cuts in 13 previous starts.
Prior to Thursday’s co-lead with Tom Lewis, Bjorn’s third-round lead at the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George’s represents the only other time he has led after any round on the PGA TOUR (84 previous starts).
First-Round Leader Stats
Since 1975, just five first-round leaders of the British Open have gone on to win: Tiger Woods (2005), John Daly (1995), Greg Norman (1993 at Royal St. George’s), Seve Ballesteros (1988) and Tom Watson (1980).
The first-round leader/co-leader has gone on to win just five of 28 stroke-play events on the PGA TOUR in 2011, most recently Rory McIlroy at the U.S. Open.
The lowest opening-round score at the British Open is 63, set by Rory McIlroy at St. Andrews in 2010.
The best opening round at Royal St. George’s was turned in by Christy O’Connor in 1985 (64).
Hennie Otto led after the first round of the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George’s with a 68. He eventually finished T10.
Lucas Glover’s 4-under 66 is just his second round in the 60s in six starts at the British Open (17 rounds). He opened at St. Andrews last year with a 67 before turning in rounds of 76-70-76 to finish T48.
Glover, a 31-year-old native of Greenville, SC, posted his best British Open finish at Carnoustie in 2007 (T27).
Glover, winner of the 2009 U.S. Open, has eight made cuts in 14 previous starts this season, with his win at the Wells Fargo Championship his lone top 10.
Webb Simpson opened his first British Open with a bogey-free 4-under 66 on Thursday. He entered Royal St. George’s as one of the most consistent players on TOUR, with nine consecutive weekend appearances – eight of which were top-25 finishes. He has missed the cut just twice in 16 previous starts this season, with 12 top 25s.
Simpson, a 25-year-old native of Raleigh, NC, is hoping history repeats itself this week. Just nine players have won the British Open in their first appearance, most recently Ben Curtis at Royal St. George’s in 2003. The others are Tom Watson (1975), Tony Lema (1964), Ben Hogan (1953), Denny Shute (1933), Jock Hutchison (1921), Mungo Park (1874), Tom Kidd (1873) and Willie Park Sr. (1860).
Miguel Angel Jimenez
Miguel Angel Jimenez carded a bogey-free 4-under 66 in his 19th start at the British Open, with a T3 in 2001 his best effort. He has one previous start at Royal St. George’s, finishing T51 in 1993.
Thursday’s 66 was Jimenez’s second-best score in 58 rounds at the British Open. The only time he scored lower was after a 6-under 64 resulted in the opening-round lead at Turnberry in 2009.
Jimenez owns 19 wins on the European Tour, including three in 2010.
Including this week, Jimenez has five starts on the PGA TOUR in 2011, with a T5 at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship his best result. In other starts he finished T27 at the Masters, T55 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and missed the cut at the U.S. Open.
Fresh off of his first top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR in 32 starts – a solo-second at the John Deere Classic – Kyle Stanley posted a 2-under 68 on Thursday in his debut appearance in the British Open.
With his runner-up finish at the John Deere Classic, Stanley earned a spot in the British Open as a result of being the top player among the top 5 at the Classic who was not previously eligible.
Stanley’s only Major Championship experience came at the U.S. Open, where he finished 53rd in 2009 and missed the cut in 2008.
Stanley, who finished No. 35 on the 2010 Nationwide Tour money list, earned his rookie card on TOUR with a T9 finish at last year’s Qualifying Tournament. He has made 15 of 20 cuts in 2011 and is hoping to become the fifth rookie winner this season (Jhonattan Vegas, Charl Schwartzel, Brendan Steele, Keegan Bradley).
Making his 25th career start at the British Open, Mark Calcavecchia opened on Thursday with a 1-under 69. It represents the sixth time he has opened the event with a round in the 60s. His best opening round came at Royal St. George’s in 1993 with a 4-under 66.
Calcavecchia has two previous starts at Royal St. George’s, finishing T14 in 1993 and missing the cut in 2003. In all, he has made 18 cuts in 24 previous British Open starts.
Calcavecchia has one made cut in four previous starts on the PGA TOUR in 2011, firing all five rounds in the 60s for a T33 finish at the Bob Hope Classic. He has six top-10 finishes in 12 starts on the Champions Tour.
Calcavecchia will be 51 years, 1 month and 5 days old on Sunday. Julius Boros is the oldest major championship winner at 48 years, 4 months, 18 days when victorious at the 1968 PGA Championship. The oldest winner of the British Open is Tom Morris Sr., who was 46 years, 3 months and 9 days old when he won in 1867.
Davis Love III
Davis Love III, 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup captain, posted an even-par 70 on Thursday in his 25th straight British Open appearance (dating to his start at Muirfield in 1987). The 20-time PGA TOUR winner finished T4 in 2003 at Royal St. George’s for the best of his five top-10 finishes at the British Open.
Luke Donald, currently ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking, opened with a 1-over 71 in his 11th career British Open appearance. After missing the cut in his first five starts (1999, 2000, 2002-04), he has since reeled off five straight made cuts, with his best finishes coming the last two seasons (T5-2009, T11-2010). At the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George’s, Donald missed the cut with rounds of 76-79.
Donald, the winner of last week’s Barclays Scottish Open, is hoping to become the first such player to win the British Open the following week.
Since withdrawing from the Bob Hope Classic in his first start of the 2011 season, Ryan Moore has missed just one cut in 13 starts (U.S. Open) and has three top-5 finishes (T2 – Travelers Championship, T4 – Northern Trust Open, T5 – WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship).
Moore’s 1-under 69 on Thursday is his first sub-70 round in three starts at the British Open (T42-2007, MC-2010). His previous-best effort was an opening-round 70 at St. Andrews last year before he missed the cut with a second-round 84.
Making his first start since a T23 at the U.S. Open, Dustin Johnson had an ace Thursday with a pitching wedge from 161 yards on the par-3 16th hole. It was the first hole-in-one at the British Open since Thomas Levet performed the honors at Turnberry’s 15th hole during the final round in 2009.
The four-time PGA TOUR winner entered the 14th hole at 4-over, but finished birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-bogey to finish with an even-par 70.
The ace, the 18th on the PGA TOUR in 2011, was the third of Johnson’s career. The others came at the 2008 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial (R2, No. 13) and the 2010 Northern Trust Open (R2, No. 6).
The ace was the 22nd at the British Open since 1981 and the fourth at Royal St. George’s – all occurring at the par-3 16th hole. In 1981, No. 16 yielded aces to Gordon J. Brand (R2), Roger Chapman (R4) and Sam Torrance (R4).
Johnson is making his third start at the British Open, finishing T14 in 2010 and missing the cut in 2009.
Since an opening-round 7-over 79 in his debut British Open appearance in 2010, Rickie Fowler has turned in four-consecutive par-or-better rounds. He closed at St. Andrews with rounds of 67-71-67 to finish T14 and began this week at Royal St. George’s with an even-par 70.
Fowler (70) was grouped on Thursday with U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy (71) and 18-time PGA TOUR winner and 2002 British Open champion Ernie Els (72).
Fowler is making his 17th start of the season and is coming off of a T13 finish at the AT&T National – one of seven top-20 finishes. He enjoyed his best outing at the WGC-Cadillac Championship (finished 8th).
Making his 18th British Open appearance, John Daly opened with a 2-over 72 on Thursday. With the exception of his win at St. Andrews in 1995, Daly’s best Open finish was a T14 at Royal St. George’s in 1993.
Current FedExCup points leader Nick Watney recorded a 4-over 74 in his fourth British Open start. He has yet to miss a cut, finishing T35 in 2007, T27 in 2009 and T7 in 2010.
Eight years after opening the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George’s with an 11 on the par-4 opening hole, Jerry Kelly was first off the tee at 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning. This time he found the fairway with his driver before three putting for a bogey-5. He finished the day with a 4-over 74, compared to the 86 carded in 2003.
In 11 starts at the British Open, an even-par 72 in 2006 is Jerry Kelly’s only opening-round at par or better. He finished T26 that year for his best finish at the event.
Kelly gained entry into the field on May 23 by earning the last spot at the International Final Qualifying America at Gleneagles Country Club (Plano, TX). Kelly parred the third extra hole to survive a six-man playoff.
Kelly entered the day with nine-consecutive rounds at par or better on the PGA TOUR. In 17 previous starts in 2011, a solo-third-place finish at the Honda Classic is his best of nine made cuts.
Ben Curtis, winner of the 2003 British Open at Royal St. George’s, opened with a 7-over 77 on Thursday. In 2003, he posted rounds of 72-72-70-69 for the first of his three PGA TOUR victories.
Curtis has missed the cut five times at the British Open since winning in his inaugural start. In addition, he finished T7 in 2008 and T8 in 2007.
Curtis opened with a 65 at the 2009 British Open, his only par-or-better opening-round in nine starts.
Defending champion Louis Oosthuizen opened with a 2-over 72 on Thursday. He is seeking to become the seventh player with consecutive British Open victories since 1951: Padraig Harrington (2007-08), Tiger Woods (2005-06), Tom Watson (1982-83), Lee Trevino (1971-72), Arnold Palmer (1961-62) and Peter Thomson (1954-56). Sixteen players have performed the feat throughout the history of the British Open.
2010 Major Championship Winners
Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy turned in matching 1-over 71s.
Padraig Harrington is the last player to win two majors in one year (2008 British Open & PGA Championship). The last 11 Major Championships have been won by 11 different players.

The Open Golf Championship History
The inaugural Open Championship was played over three rounds of Prestwick Golf Club Old Course’s 12-hole course in October 1860.
Only eight golfers played in that first challenge and Willie Park of Musselburgh beat Tom Morris by two strokes with a score of 174 to become the first Open Champion. No prizes were awarded until 1873 when Willie Park again triumphed and received £10.
Although the following year's championship was declared “open to the whole world” the number of contestants rose to only 12, and this time Tom Morris took the honours. He and his son, Young Tom Morris, were to dominate the event, winning four times each by 1872.
The Open Championship had always been played at Prestwick until this point, but in raising funds for a new trophy the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (Musselburgh) were invited to contribute and to stage the championship in turn. It was at this point that the famous silver Claret Jug was recognised as the Open Championship trophy.
It was not until 1894 that other venues were added to the rota and Royal St George’s, at Sandwich in Kent, became the first non-Scottish club to enter the history of the Open, followed in 1897 by the Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake in Cheshire.
