Storms, wind and heavy rain caused a delay to the start of The Masters on Thursday with play being pushed back by two and a half hours.

Conditions on day one were windy and testing, punishing players who strayed off line and rewarding those, like Bryson DeChambeau and Scottie Scheffler, who used the strong winds to their advantage.

Friday’s weather forecast is a complete turnaround with mostly sunny skies and dry conditions for players and patrons. There is a predicted high of 23 degrees this afternoon though on the whole it is slightly cooler with less humid conditions. It will continue to be windy out of the west at 15-20mph, with gusts up to 30mph throughout the day.

After a cool start on Saturday morning, temperatures will rebound nicely this weekend with highs close to 21 degrees for Saturday and touching 27 degrees on Sunday with plentiful sunshine.

Play at Augusta was suspended on Thursday evening as the delayed start forced the latter groups to contest their rounds later into the day with visibility on the decline.

The tournament organisers released this statement: “Play was suspended at 7:51pm ET due to darkness. The first round will resume on Friday at 7:50am ET. The second round will begin at 8:00am ET.”

Tiger Woods was among the 27 players who were unable to finish their first rounds on Thursday and will have to complete 23 holes in one day as he looks to keep his hopes of a record-equalling sixth Masters title alive.
