ERIN, WISCONSIN – The weather could be hit-or-miss this week at Erin Hills for the 117th playing of the U.S. Open.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Andy North thinks the weather will be a huge factor.

“The weather is going to have an unbelievable effect on this golf tournament.” North said Monday. “It’s going to be an interesting week for everybody. Hopefully the weather is decent. If we had winds here like we had (last) Saturday, there wouldn’t be enough balls to finish some of these holes. It would be fun.”

A Thursday weather delay that would allow Phil Mickelson to make it to Wisconsin from his daughter’s high school graduation in California in time to start the opening round appears unlikely if the forecast holds true – but it’s Mother Nature and anything can happen.

Here is the outlook for today through Sunday (according to AccuWeather):



High of 80

Low of 64

Partly sunny, warm and muggy



High of 84

Low of 66

Possibility of an afternoon thunderstorm or two


Thursday (First round)
