Winds blown


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Caught up with cerebral swing coach Sean Foley under the oak tree this morning just as the action was getting underway and, as he normally does, he had some interesting insight into the golf course.

“When it blows 20 (mph) it is one of the hardest courses in the world,” Foley said. “The wind swirls and you’ve got long par 4s that are uphill that you have to hit a high shot into it. That’s tough.”

Bad news for the afternoon wave, Thursday’s forecast calls for southwest winds at 20 mph with gusts to 25 mph by noon.
