Those of us in the snowy north like to think that playing in tough weather makes us better competitors. But does that compensate enough for the fact that y'all in the south (and west . . . Hawaii . . . sigh) can play more often?
I suppose its like any sport Terry aint it? Dan Marino was a outstanding quarter back when it was warm( Odd him being from Pittsburg) but Brettt Favre will probably go down in history as being the games best ever.(Odd...he is from the part of the country that lost the war). Got to always give the edge to the player who can not only deal with adverse conditions, but also thrives on it. Im pretty predjudiced on this particular one being from Wisconsin. This is a year long passion for me...My family plays in the snow and extreme cold...but as far as who the edge goes to...? who knows? Climo wins against anyone in all temps with large enough seat coushions for his ears ( I had to...envy ) but there are people from southern California who Im pretty confident I could spank in a round of golf in mid January but not touch in june.Its one of the many things I sooo love about this sport. It has permeated almost every corner of the globe. People who do it have a bond with one another that is undeniable and pretty rare.
Didn't Mark Twain once say "The coldest winter I ever spent. Was a summer in San Francisco" (paraphrasing, but I think it's close) Well anyway, I need to be warm to enjoy a round of disc golf. Playing tough is for the young! Plus I don't think adverse conditions stokes my competitive fire, but playing year round has got to help. Besides we get frost a few times a year and then I have to break out my credit card to scrape my windows. MAN, what a pain! lol!! So we don't always have great weather in Nor. Cal. ;)~
