What?! The New York Post, biased??? I have them on my morning reading list of news sources. Not to get another point of view, but to get a good laugh.

TBH, I have no experience with the source. It was just a piece that was on my phone this morning when I pulled up the internet. I realized later it was a biased piece.  But since I’ve never contributed to this thread in the past, I saw it as an opportunity :-)

I got the second booster and man it put me out. Lethargic for days. Arm still hurts three days later. But not bad enough to stop me from going to the range, heh heh. To quote a certain Ted Lasso character, Golf is Life!

Are you 50+ or is it open to more now?

I tested positive Wednesday morning. Just flu like symptoms. I was supposed to be going to Myrtle Beach for a baseball tournament. So glad the US OPEN is on !

A global pandemic thread that doesn't get a comment since April 27 is a statement in and of itself.

Your post was also #3678. I don’t think it says much more than that it is nearing three years old.

Maybe it will result in a long-term Covid effect of hitting the ball in the center of the face, away from the hosel... 😀

Get well Kevin.

I hope we won’t have to have a monkeypox thread next.

Must have been all those late night boozing rave parties, eh? 😀 Get well soon. Hope there’s no long Covid issues for you!

I read that the smallpox vaccine works against monkeypox.

Finally, a benefit to being above a certain age. Yep, I've got the scar.

1971, from a quick search, was when they stopped vaccinating against smallpox.

I have read that, as well. But, I really prefer that the country does not have to go through another vaccination campaign.

It's been 55 years, or more, since I received my smallpox vaccination.  I'm not certain how effective that vaccination remains but I suspect my chances of needing to find out are pretty darn low.

Done in 1962 according to my Department of Defense immunization card.

(You don't have one of these?)

I have the scar but it’s barely visible now.

    • I’ll always have a better chance at match play over stroke play. When I fire a snowman, I’m pretty much done. But in match play it’s just one hole.😃
    • Day 616 or so: Practiced twice today. First I the morning then in the afternoon after I got back my Evolvr lesson.
    • Practiced twice today. First I worked on some pieces and I didn’t like what I saw in the video. Then, I got my Evolvr lesson back from @iacas and he gave me another feel and idea to work on. Basically, it’s a combination of palmar flexion at the top and forearm rotation to impact. The later is what I am having trouble with. They are somewhat independent. Erik talked about drawing a line through my wrist through the radius and ulna and seeing how it should rotate through impact. So, because I’m a nerd, I took a chopstick and wrist brace and made a training aid so I could see the rotation. It’s not exactly the right angle, but it’s close. I also should really feel like I’m swinging straight down from the top and have the club head drop back behind me while I palmar flex. Here is a 6 iron below. I didn’t swing much faster in any of my practice swings. The pool noodle is there to make me swing out more and not pull the grip left through impact.   Here is the driver. Down the line views.  I only did these mapping swings today. Tomorrow, if the mapping looks okay, I will move onto slow full swings.
    • They must have heard me whining.. lol.
    • I bought a sleeve of Taylormade Tour Response with the large green stripe.  I like them, and the way I’ve seen people line up putts is to line the big green stripe 90 degrees to where they are aiming, so unlike the triple track or single line guides that point at your line, it’s the other way. I’ve started doing that with any ball now, even lining up off the tee.   Generally I play Titleist ProV1 regular or X, with some TP5 and Chrome Soft Triple Track thrown in
