The weather impact is in the scores, the scores go into the formulas. We have no adjustments in the formulas for weather. The TDs can tell the PDGA about weather and it may provide help when there...

The rating system would not combine the scores for those two rounds to calculate the round ratings, they would be done separately. So yes, the scores would look odd in comparison, but the ratings...
