Muirfield Village is a notoriously difficult track that demands accuracy both off the tee and on approach shots. The fairways, while slightly wider than some recent venues, are tree-lined with numerous bunkers and water hazards in play. The rough is deep and penal, reminiscent of Major Championship conditions. The greens are small, surrounded by bunkers and require a strong around-the-green game for success. Water is in play on 70% of the holes, adding to the challenge.

The weather forecast suggests steady winds around 12-15 mph, with gusts into the 20s and a 25-30% chance of rain on three out of four days. Be sure to check closer to the tournament for any updates.
