The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
It is funny that I see this topic here. Playing in Hawaii, we see it all, all the time. I personally, have seen mainland players come to our tourneys, and say they are really good, only to be trampled on by the local players. Their biggest reason, the wind. Playing in Hawaii, the wind is never constant, nor is it always from the same direction.
You can literally be on the teepad getting ready to drive, mentally prepared to throw into the current wind situation, only to have the wind stop and change direction. The wind here is also never at a constant rate. It can be low blowing, then it can turn into almost gale force winds. (I should know, I went big with a Roadrunner from an elevated tee, and got a 700' OB Bomb)
I do think playing in the wind does make you a better player for those conditions, not for all the conditions.
