Sexy. Is that for real? I would have thought for sure they cancelled.

No way will they cancel. Only for lightning and even then ive seen some pretty stupid moves in the name of disc. Last year at VT states we played in a damn monsoon, as if that course needed to be made more difficult. Then at lunch there was a lightning storm for a couple hours which caused us to start the second round at about 3 (aka i was drunk from waiting so long)

Yup. Pretty much the only way a tournament will be canceled is due to lighting that doesn't stop, tornado, hurricane, etc...

Discers are hardcore !

This isn't freakin' NASCAR. We play in the rain, like Formula 1.

Knowing how to play in adverse weather is a very important skill.

If you are able to keep your game in check under these conditions you can often gain a few strokes on your competition by playing smart and letting them self-destruct around you.

if it's really rainy, most players use an umbrella. i never thought much of it until my wife pointed out how it was slightly funny to see a bunch of ruff and gruff disc golfers carrying umbrellas like fancy-boys. :lol: but, it makes the day way less miserable.

Let me set a scene for you.

2007 Philly Open - Sedgley Woods, Philadelphia, PA
Day 1 - sunny skies, beautiful weather, perfect golfing conditions
Day 2 - wake up to rain that has been falling for HOURS. Not a nice sprinkle or anything, rain that made my ceiling in my apartment leak! Rain that flooded roads!
Get to the course and it is basically under water. Rain was scheduled to continue all day and all night.
We have the players meeting in rain so hard you could barely hear the TD calling out the course changes that HAD to be made since there were multiple holes TOTALLY UNDER WATER!
I was soaked to the bone before we even tee'ed off on hole #1. Not one person was dry, not one! umbrellas did not help one bit. water proof was a non existant product that day!
We played, I finished 2nd - I was prune'd head to toe for 24 hours!


We don't stop for anything! Play on playa!

If you don't stop for snow, why stop for rain?
