The conditions will play a factor in this week's state boys golf championships.
But a tournament-tested bunch of golfers from the Top of Utah have lofty goals as the 5-A, 4-A, 3-A and 2-A tournaments are staged around the state this week.
The 4-A and 5-A tournaments run today and Tuesday, with the 2-A and 3-A tournaments to follow on Wednesday and Thursday.
The weather forecast for those days is warm and windy.
The 5-A tournament begins at 9 a.m. today at Alpine Country Club in Highland. Lone Peak will have a local-course advantage, but Brighton and Region 1 champion Viewmont figure to be in the mix along with Region 1 runner-up Syracuse.
Both the Vikings and Titans boast a full lineup of golfers who can bunch at par or better, making them tought to beat in the team format.
Fremont's Dylan Chugg and West's Austin Banz will be among those battling for the medalist honors.
The top teams advance to Tuesday's second day of competition.
The 4-A tournament starts at 9 a.m. today at Ogden Golf and Country Club in South Ogden. Region 5 champion Bonneville figures to be among the favorites, if nothing else because the Lakers can sleep in their own beds.
"Out on the golf course, everyone is even," Bonneville coach Mike Edwards said.
Maple Mountain stormed past Bonneville for last year's state title, and those teams, along with Woods Cross, Timpiew and Orem will be in the mix.
Bonneville's Kaige Schuler and Carson Park, Logan's Justin Kim and Roy's Ryder Velasquez could be medalist contenders, along with Highland's Matt Loose and Woods Cross standout Kyle Beard.
Bonneville's depth could play a big role if the Lakers can advance to Tuesday's second round.
Clearfield also qualified as a team out of Region 6.
The 3-A tournament begins on Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Mountain Dell Golf Course.
Park City, winners of the last five 3-A crowns, will be favored. Bear River has shown consistent play all season long.
The top individuals look to be Park City's Mitchell Schow, Bear River's Triston Hartfiel and Bridger Layton, Desert Hills' Taylor Cummings and Dixie's Nicklaus Britt.
The 2-A tourament will also run Wednesday and Thursday at Palisade Golf Course in central Utah.
Layton Christian Academy, always in the mix in the spring 1-A tournament, has moved up to the 2-A ranks and will be challenging Beaver for the team title.
Of course, the Beavers has won three 2-A titles in a row.
LCA's Jaece Stokes and Nick Norton will lead the Eagles, who won the 1-A crown in May, and could pull off a calendar double with a win this week at the 2-A level.
