No helicopters needed?

Just because there's snow falling on Tulsa and Grand Lake, no one should start thinking about helicopters to get the Classic competitors to the official weigh-ins, or some such, like The Rolling Stones' appearance at Altamont.


Thursday's weather forecast isn't much better than today's. But no one will be going to the lake; it's media day in Tulsa.


The latest forecast for the three-day tournament is as follows:


Friday: High 37, low 20, 0% precipitation possibility, NW winds at 8 mph;


Saturday: High 48, low 25, 10% precip., S winds at 3 mph;


Sunday: High 65; low 34, 0% precip., SSE winds at 16.


The air will be chilly most days, but the roads between Grand Lake and Tulsa should be clear, although Friday's takeoff could be a bit dicey.
