    • I recall a somewhat recent study that T-cell response was present in people who had been infected with Covid-19 with mild/asymptomatic cases, so the lack of antibodies doesn't necessarily mean that our immune systems won't have the biological machinery to fight infection, and eventual vaccination against this is not an unreasonable hope. While we wait, masks and physical distancing are the best tools at our disposal.
    • Thanks @Mr22putt! I am feeling ok. The cough is on and off, and I have no other symptoms so far other than feeling tired. It could be from too much golf in the heat the week before and I have had a cough on and off since late February (PCP said it was allergies related), so who knows🤷🏻‍♀️... I have been in isolation for 8 days now, so I will know if I make it or not in a few more days. I will probably stay in isolation for another week or two, just to be safe. Not being able to play golf is depressing but better to be safe than sorry. My husband is a physician scientist - he see patients and does science research. So far everyone at his clinic is safe, but a research student in his lab building (not his student) just tested positive. Our numbers are still ok compared to other states but we are trending up. Once the hospital hits a certain number of patients, my husband will be drafted to the ER/ICU to help out. I don’t want that to happen, so even though I cannot save lives, I am not going to contribute to making others sick.  Your area is doing very well indeed. I wish more people would take this seriously and stop being selfish. My old club was a zoo during the July 4th weekend. I stayed away but my friends were complaining about how busy the club house was and no one was wearing masks/social distancing. Honestly, I am surprised it took this long for our club to get the first positive and I don’t expect it to be the last either... Take care!
    • It is sounding more and more like this is going to be a vaccine that you have to get more than once, or get booster shots, or get every year like a flu shot. Maybe we'll have to get it twice a year or four times a year. Hell, if it works and is safe I'll get one vaccination every week if need be.
    • What Adam said. I'd also add if you are one of those players that carries a "sand wedge" by that I mean a wedge which you only use from the sand, testing that without sand may be the biggest waste of time ever.  Often a wedge fitting begins with the question "What do you do with your wedges?" Do you favor a specialized wedge for a certain task, or do you use all of your wedges for multiple tasks? Somebody who hits full shots with their wedge has far different needs than somebody who only uses it for chipping, short pitches, or long pitches, or only uses it out of the sand. Some people carry one wedge for this purpose, one wedge for that purpose and then a utility wedge which needs to do a lot of stuff.  Similarly, the answer to the above question can change over time.  I just realized I never actually addressed the OP's original question.  If you have the funds to get fit for a club before you buy it. I'd always recommend doing so. This is true of everything in your bag, including your putter.  Getting fit can help reduce or eliminate F.U.D. (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) I believe getting fit also allows you to learn more about your game and how you use your clubs. Personally, I find getting fit is fun.  Of course, there is always a cost factor and I totally get that. 
    • Yes I usually do check before I play. So far they have been pretty accurate. Sometimes the yardages are off some but not by much. The Preview Caddie has been helpful as well.
