The Open Championship is set to tee off on Thursday July 15 at Royal St. George's in Kent, England. A country not exactly known for its gorgeous climate, the weather at the British Open will be along the lines of what we might expect based on England's reputation.

Luckily for the field of golfers, the weather forecast predicts it to be very similar for all four days of the tournament. Thursday through Sunday the temperature is expected to be in the low 60s, with a 10% chance of rain and winds ranging from 8-10 MPH.

While this is exactly the summer weather PGA Tour players are used to for most of their professional calendar, it will be manageable conditions and they all have played in far worse and more unpredictable climates.

At very least this forecast will give players the chance to prepare fro what they will face over the four days of the tournament and that is always helpful.

Jon Rahm remains the favorite to take home the Claret Jug at FanDuel Sportsbook, but others are surely in contention.
