Ryder Cup Weather Forecast: Sunny Skies on Tap in Rome

The 44th Ryder Cup begins this weekend at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, Italy, with the U.S. Team coming in as slight favorites over Europe after a 19-9 victory at Wisconsin’s Whistling Straits in the 2021 Ryder Cup.

This year’s Ryder Cup marks the first time the prestigious team event will be contested in Italy. The Europeans have defended home soil an astounding six consecutive times with the Americans last winning across the pond in 1993 (15-13 at The Belfry in England).

Much can be said about the ability to defend on home soil, whether it’s because of favorable formatting or an advantageous travel schedule, but maybe no factor is more important than one’s comfort and familiarity with the weather and conditions at the host course and country.

The sun is shining in Rome and temperatures remain warm, with potentially dry and sunny conditions creating a hard and fast layout – yet another obstacle for players as they look to go head-to-head in their battle for victory at the 2023 Ryder Cup. Temperatures are likely to reach 30 degrees Celsius (mid-80s Fahrenheit) by the afternoon on each day, with low winds of about 6 mph.

Thursday synopsis: “Clear skies and light NNE winds at 4 MPH were reported at Marco Simone. Today will feature sunny skies with a few scattered afternoon clouds with NNE winds gradually shifting to the NW and then W by late afternoon but remainingbelow 10 MPH. High-pressure remains in control of our weather through the weekend with lots of sunshine, warm temperatures and fairly light winds. No rain is expected through the period.”
