The 2023 Zurich Classic tees off this week from TPC Louisiana. Its unique format as the PGA TOUR’s only team event will bring together top golfers to compete with each other as well as against each other in two days of four-ball and two days of foursomes just outside of New Orleans.

Last year’s winners Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele partner up again as a team to try and repeat their victory. They are the favorites to win at DraftKings Sportsbook with their odds set at +400, with Max Homa and Collin Morikawa behind them at +850.

The PGA TOUR has hardly been able to catch a break with the weather this season, and the trend continues with scattered thunderstorms predicted to roll through the Big Easy on Friday and Saturday.

Below is a look at the weather report for the four days of the 2023 Zurich Classic starting Thursday, April 20 and ending Sunday, April 23.
