The Course Conditions and Weather

The weather which hasn’t been cooperating as of late was the real star of today’s action, with the clear blue skies and sun. This is what Puerto Rico is known for and I know that the players and the fans are really appreciating the excellent weather. The course at Trump National Golf Club, is surprisingly great shape after 6.6 inches of rain that fell on Thursday. Some parts of the course are a little soft, but with preferred lies being played, it’s likely that the course record of 64 will be broken, by end of play on Monday.
