One of the locals wasn't kidding when he called the area "God's air conditioning." In the mornings here, like today, it is cool. High 40s, low 50s. Driving in, you needed a nice pair of sunglasses. Not a cloud in the sky. Once on site, different story. The sun is trying to break through, and doing so in spots.
Switching gears, it's all for real now. It's interesting to note the disposition of players getting ready to play as opposed to the past couple of days. They're definitely not as loose. Maybe except for defending champion Byeong-Hun An, who said he feels no pressure as champion. "No, that was last year. This is all new and that's the way I'm approaching it."
