The final practise day is underway at Muirfield ahead of the 142nd Open Championship this week.
The historic tournament starts tomorrow (Thursday) and is set for perfect summer conditions.
So far the players have reported a hard and fast course and there are high hopes for good scoring.
The forecast contrasts with the last time Muirhead hosted the Open in 2002, when a weekend storm ravaged the leaderboard and world number one Tiger Woods shot a third-round 81.
Ahead of today’s final practise round, former US Open champion Graeme McDowell admitted he is hoping for good conditions.
“Obviously weather is always going to play a massive factor.
“Let’s pray for a great, sunny, breezy weekend. That would be fantastic.”
Whatever the weather, the Northern Irishman is not getting carried away by the prospect of summery conditions and believes the Royal & Ancient will make sure the game’s elite are tested.
“They can get fairly evil with pin positions, the R&A, I have to say. They can get a little bit evil.
“These greens, there are some little corners on them that they can find.”
McDowell has arrived at the Open amid a run of inconsistent form, having won three of his last eight events but missed the cut in the other five, including at the last two majors.
