Day 1 - the wet and windy weather of early morning changed into very heavy showers with clear periods, late in the day however the weather has relented leaving a cloudy but cool evening with a slight breeze. This change in the weather was reflected in the scoring which improved as the day progressed - a slight advantage to the later starters.

Day 2 has started in cool overcast conditions with little or no wind compared to day 1 - the sun is struggling to make it's presence felt but the forecast is for a better day with sunny intervals - excellent scoring conditions.

Day 3 - a cool and windy start to wednesday which brings the start of the matchplay section of the Championship. Heavy rain overnight has receeded and the forecast is dry for the rest of the day
